Snapshot of VPHA progress (53% completed)

About a month ago, VPHA entered a new phase as we started actively distributing early ALD publications for reading. This activity has significantly accelerated the progress of VPHA; thank you to everyone who has participated in the work.

The graphs below show a snapshot of the VPHA author and reading situation taken May 14th. Comparison to the previous snapshots from May 5 (for authors) and April 28 (for reading) shows that good progress is taking place.

  • At this moment, the total completion status is 53%. The crossover point, where the #comments received became larger than #comments needed, corresponding to >50% reading completion status, was on May 10, 2016.  
  • The current number of co-authors is 63. Co-authors come from 18 countries in three continents: Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States. 
  • Work is not finished; for example, there still 59 publications in the ALD-history-evolving-file without any comments. 

VPHA progresses and the numbers change quickly. More volunteers are still welcome to join VPHA. It would be nice to say in a future update that we have four, or even five continents involved --- how about e.g. Brazil or Australia?
