Audience size is very difficult to gauge because InterNano serves multiple disciplines and sectors. Also, users are one
audience group and contributors are another. We have about 450 times the number of visitors/subscribers to our
newsletter than we have people who contribute their work. We also aggregate existing research, press releases, and
other content, which represents a much broader scope of authorship, but not active contributors.
