Since our launch 3 years ago, Academia.edu has been rapidly growing and in the last 12 months we have tripled in size, as academics are flooding to join our network. Today we hit a million users!
We’d like to thank you for being a part of Academia.edu. Users are the most valuable asset of any community site and we really appreciate your role in making Academia.edu the successful research network it is today.
With over 3000 new users joining every day, we feel we must be doing something right, but there is always room for improvement. As we develop Academia.edu, its useful (and often fascinating) to learn how our users feel about the site. So we’d like take this opportunity to request your insight.
Currently our stats dashboard is receiving the most attention from our users; it seems academics are hunting for ways to prove their research has international impact and the metrics we provide are becoming invaluable! We’d love to hear about your experiences with our stats dashboard. How are the metrics affecting your career, be it for grant applications, tenure-track portfolios or publishing?
