It is grant writing season as well as a bunch of progress reports have been due here at Columbia so I am trying to evaluate Stan’s impact with various online resources. I have basic results for a range of metrics. I’ll start with my favorite because it shows tons of Stan usage in the research literature:
- Counts of research articles mentioning Stan ecosystem packages in Elsevier’s search engine (https://scopus.com).
Annual counts for Stan ecosystem in Scopus.com (Elsevier search engine) classified by Scopus category. Query:’(brms AND burkner) OR (gelman AND hoffman AND stan) OR mc-stan.org OR rstanarm OR pystan OR (rstan AND NOT mit)’ EDIT2: use All Fields option in advanced search.
EDIT: The above categories are a subset of what is actually covered–the subset reflects NSF (National Science Foundation) directorates subject areas for a program we are applying for. Below is the graph of all categories.
EDIT2: Corrected graph above, original graph below just to keep the revision clear. Had some odd issues and was wrong but in the end I have verified that API access mirrors the scopus.com counts.
