Science doesn’t stop in summer, and neither should your marketing campaigns.

June 1, 2023

It’s a common misconception among marketers that when summer comes, scientists go on vacation for months and put their research projects on hold. 

In reality, our numbers suggest summer is a great time for scientists to get work done without being interrupted by classes and meetings. This means summer is a great time to get their attention.

Visits on ResearchGate remain high

Even if scientists do make it to the beach, our traffic numbers show that most of them take their research with them and check ResearchGate on vacation. There’s no significant summer dip in people viewing content on ResearchGate, and the number of members who log in to the network is just as high as in other seasons.

Engagement goes up, and so your CTRs

Not only does their engagement not dip during the holiday season, it actually increases. Our numbers show that researchers interact more with your ad campaigns during these months than in any other season. So, science never stops, and neither does ResearchGate.
