Holy Cow. Microsoft Academic is shutting down. That’s a considerable blow to bibliometric scholars and services.

"Maak het groot. Stel een grens. Kies de aanval. Trakteer de heer B. op tegenmacht. Echte tegenmacht. Macht die erop uit is hem te breken.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.
