Science doesn’t stop in winter

And neither should your marketing campaigns.

It’s almost that time of the year again, when everyone leaves the office and finds their way home for the holidays. Well, not everyone. Our numbers show scientists stay busy through December. Even when scientists leave the lab for an end-of-year break, their engagement on ResearchGate remains high. And booming markets in the East don’t slow down at all.
