I am pleased to share with you a measure of Steven's continuing influence in the academic world. According to ResearchGate, interest in Steven's research is higher than 99% of other researchers on ResearchGate. This statistic is based on the number of citations of his work by other researchers, the number of times his published works are read, the number of times his publications are recommended to others, and the number of people who follow his work.
In 2021, for example, his work in the field of human motivation was cited in a journal article by American researchers who are developing a measure of motivation for physical exertion, in a book about math interventions, in a chapter by researchers from the Czech Republic about why people play Bridge, in a European article about the multidimensional nature of motivation, in what appears to be a Turkish journal article about the motives that underlie interest in watching reality TV, in an Arabic journal article about motivation in sixth grade girls enrolled in science classes, in a study of the motives of high school students in Ghana for learning math, in a conference paper delivered in Prague on values and motives, and in a study of online learning among junior high school students in Denpasar.
If you are not familiar with ResearchGate, it is a commercial social networking site for scientists and researchers to share papers, ask and answer questions, and find collaborators. According to a 2014 study by Nature and a 2016 article in Times Higher Education, ResearchGate is the largest academic social network in terms of active users, with more than 15 million users mostly from Europe and North America.
