Scientists Sign Up to SelectScience in Record Numbers
Global community growing faster than ever as word of membership benefits spreads
Working in fields ranging from life sciences to clinical diagnostics, from drug discovery to materials and from food and beverage to forensics, scientists are flocking to the innovative online publisher in search of high-quality, peer-reviewed information about the latest techniques and technologies.
Following accelerated SelectScience membership growth in recent months, May and June hit record highs, as almost 8,000 more scientists from around the world joined the thriving online community — an increase of over 130% on the same period last year.
The latest surge is largely down to word of mouth, content marketing and exceptional growth on social media, where SelectScience is reaching more scientists than ever before, with the SelectScience Facebook page now approaching the 260k follower mark following a sharp rise of well over 500% since October. The new Scientists' Channel Facebook page has already attracted more than 39,000 followers in just four months.
Strong content the key to member growth
The team at SelectScience (visit us at http://www.selectscience.net) produces high-quality content that effectively engages and informs scientists looking to buy the best laboratory products and services to advance their research.
This includes breaking science news, interviews with leading scientists about their research, downloadable resources such as application notes and how-to-buy eBooks, and comprehensive coverage of the biggest science shows around the world, as well as hosting exceptional educational webinars.
At its heart, SelectScience is a global community where hundreds of thousands of scientists communicate and exchange opinions on the best lab equipment and services.Membership is completely free and also gives free access to the revolutionary new video platform, The Scientists' Channel (see https://www.thescientistschannel.com), where scientists can present their work, share innovations and expertise, and publicize their organization to a worldwide audience.
Exciting features to attract even more members
News of the influx of scientists comes hard on the heels of other good news at SelectScience, who revealed last month that it had also been a record-breaking year for requests for product quotes by scientists using the site to source new lab equipment, consumables and services.
Editor-in-Chief, Kerry Parker, said: "We are delighted to welcome all these new members from across the scientific spectrum and across the world. It's been so rewarding to see word spread of the various benefits that free membership to our online community can bring.
"Without our hundreds of thousands of members, we wouldn't be the thriving community we are today, so I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them all for putting their trust in SelectScience.
"We hope to attract many more over the coming months with a number of other exciting features designed to make it even easier for scientists to find exactly what they are looking for."
