Just a quick question team, I've crunched 50 million credits and have yet to have a single tag for a scientific publication. I've noticed a lot of members with 15-20 million credits with publication tags; am I just experiencing bad scientific luck?

Your thoughts would be most welcome.

The scientific publications have a significant lead time.
Looks like the last paper published was doen around the time your joined (23 Mar 2014) and I'm sure that paper would have been based on info from months preceeding.

I'm sure that you'll be collecting many tags, but it may take awhile for them to be granted.

I was here for over a year before I received my first badges for scientific publications and as you can see I only have two at the moment. It's all just a matter of when the results from the tasks you processed actually get published. Don't worry, those badges will be coming. There just haven't many papers published lately.
