After we had published the edited volume “Governance across borders: transnational fields and transversal themes“ based on a selection of blog posts in 2013 (the CC-licensed book is available as an on-demand-printed edition, as a PDF and as an Epub), we returned to blogging as usual in 2014. Please find our traditional end-of-year statistics below.

Top 5 blog posts 2014 (in terms of visitors):

  1. Measuring the “Adoption” of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs)*
  2. EU Commission’s Consultation Report Shows: Current Copyright is Unbalanced
  3. The State of IFRS in Africa: Is IFRS in Disarray?*
  4. The “invisible epidemic”: non-communicable diseases*
  5. In partial agreement with SKS on what caused the Indian Microfinance Crash

* also in the Top 5 of 2013

Top 5 search terms guiding visitors to our blog in 2014:

  1. Andhra Pradesh microfinance crisis (also #1 in 2011 & 2012, #2 in 2013)
  2. methodological nationalism
  3. feudal society trade map
  4. securitization (also #4 in 2013)
  5. google transnational

Top 5 countries our visitors came from in 2014 (last year’s position in brackets):

  1. United States (1)
  2. India (2)
  3. Germany (3)
  4. United Kingdom (4)
  5. Canada (5)

Top series in 2014:

  1. Algorithm Regulation (5 out of 10 posts in 2014)
  2. The Series Series (1/9)
  3. Wise Cartoons (1/6)

In total we published 30 new posts in 2014, which is only half of last year’s 61 and below our self-set goal of blogging about once a week on average. Seemingly, Phil completing his PhD (followed by an offline trecking tour) and myself becoming a father hurt our blogging statistics. Accordingly, we also received fewer comments and visitor numbers dropped, as well, but not too sharply, from over 40,000 in 2013 to about 34,000 in 2014. Our new year’s resolution is therefore to at least beat our 2014 numbers in 2015.

The year 2013 has been our fifth year of blogging and its highlight was the publication of our blogbook “Governance across borders: transnational fields and transversal themes“. By selecting and thematically grouping the articles into an edited volume, we make it easier for potential readers to grasp lines of arguments and common themes that span single blog posts. We’ve also found that many of our posts had a more lasting effect than expected, evidently supplying information and insights worth preserving in a more structured format. The book is licenced under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Germany license and available as an on-demand-printed edition, as a PDF (10.1 MB) and as an Epub (1.1 MB) file.

Of course, we also continued blogging and, as every year, we are happy to present some statistics:
