Hi guys,

I know DL is doing a lot of research and working together with several PhD students and other scientific experts to improve duolingo every day. I'm sure a bunch of really interesting studies come out of that and I was wondering whether it might be a good idea to have something like a publication list linked on the page where interested users like myself can read up on some of the cool stuff you're doing behind the scenes.

I know you are working on a bunch of stuff right now, but maybe something to consider for the future?

Thanks! Franky

Great idea! I'd like to see this too. In the meantime, searching for "Duolingo" on http://scholar.google.com/ yields 188 results -- I think only a few of them have major relevance to Duolingo, and some aren't peer reviewed, but it's a good place to start digging for now.

yes I have done exactly that before and that is how I thought: wouldn't it be nice to have them all on one spot? :)

Well, being a research student myself, I definitely agree, and who knows, I may do some research using Duolingo as a research tool, and I would certainly publish it if I do. In fact, I wish we had a nice safe area to have intellectual discussions, because sadly, the general forum, is, for the lack of a better word, a mess.

Thanks, but I meant the actual research studies published in scientific journals. Like, the REALLY nerdy stuff :)

Yes, Franky, I agree. I was trying to find something that is as similar to PubMed in medical sciences as it is to computer science. I simply forget the name.

The challenge of the 21st century is this: sharing is easy but finding an audience is hard. Businesses of all kinds are under threat from digital and the trend towards a price zero. Consumers expect more and more for free yet the creation of the products they want is expensive.

Influential digital technology offers a solution to this challenge – a revolution in thinking that has the potential to transform the way we do business, make art and run non-profit organisations in a connected world

The future,, is about relationships; building connections with real people and finding ways to encourage or let them spend money on products, services and experiences that they value. By DDuolingo tailoring products, and varying prices - starting with free and moving upwards on the curve - can begin to take us on a journey from freeloaders to superfans

Does this mean that you would like to see some records of what the DL Team uses for research/help to continue to allow Duolingo to grow? That would be cool, so we could see what helped the DL team, and maybe we could use those sources, as well as Duolingo? Is that what you are saying?

I hope I wasn't confusing.... ;)
