  1. 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.

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