2017 has been an exciting year for Trellis. We’ve seen record numbers of users logging in and engaging a rise in weekly active groups. We’ve also launched new groups for AAAS members interested in science advocacy and Trellis group admins. Beyond these site-wide metrics, a number of individual Trellis groups have also hit membership milestones this year. Join us in celebrating these growing communities.

Recently, leading STM publishing analyst Outsell produced a report on Scholarly Collaboration Networks, a category within which they place Trellis. It was a lot of fun to have the chance to speak with their analyst and have a chance to tell her the Trellis story. But my favorite part was what she had to say about us when the report finally came out:
“Trellis is one to watch as it strengthens its user base and appeal to various stakeholders across the scientific community.” – Outsell
Here are a few more of the key takeaways from the report:
Today we’re delighted to announce a brand new fellowship program from AAAS, thanks to the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The AAAS Community Engagement Fellows Program will be a one year pilot to support the professional development and ongoing professionalization of community engagement experts within the scientific community.
You can read more about the program in the EurekAlert news release, and the accompanying story on aaas.org . We’ve addressed some more general questions about how the program fits in with Trellis and what it will look like below.
