  1. Graph queries for Twitter

    I (and hundreds of other academics) spend a lot of time grabbing tweets and making graphs/networks out of them using things like Neo4j & Cytoscape or Gephi. It would be nice if we could do graph queries directly & it would probably lower some of the query demand on Twitter, if we didn't have to grab all the data to make the graphs ourselves.

  3. Make license terms for academic powertrack historical jobs indefinite (or very long)

    I am currently in the process of buying a historical powertrack job and while a pricing system that is a bit more in line with the budget academics usually have available would be nice, the more critical problem is that the data is licensed for one year. This is completely infeasible for academic purposes simply since project work usually takes multiple years, journal revisions (that may require further analyses) often take months to years, and many organizations mandate that data is stored for 10+ years for replication purposes. Just allowing academic organizations to work with a data set they have…

  4. Include citation score and impact factor for research papers tweeted and let governing bodies of academic research acknowledge the same

    Let researchers publish their paper via twitter editorial board. Hope it will be sooner than the existing lazy editorial boards of journal biggies.

    Give impact factor citation scores. Let the agencies that govern the academic policies involve twitter citations in their agenda.

    I'd like to directly access Twitter data without needing to write code to collect data from the API.

  6. EU- VAT Invoices

    As a student doing research at an EU University and I need to have VAT invoices to be reimbursed. Can VAT invoices be added as an option for premium billing?
