We switched off the Recommended service at the end of 2020. Whilst we attracted a loyal and enthusiastic audience, we were unable to grow this to the extent that we had hoped.
It takes time and money to keep a service like Recommended going, and we need to ensure that the money that we spend delivers as much benefit as possible to the whole scientific research community. We decided it can better support scientific discovery by investing that time and money by improving the core web services that millions of researchers use every day, rather than continuing to support Recommended.
