- the number of regular editors have more then doubled
- over 60% of the top 6 are female

For the Public Policy project it will be impossible to make as much of a difference. It is even easy to argue that their project would benefit by reaching out to the Indonesian universities because they and for instance a Russian and a Dutch university are needed to prevent the inevitable bias that will be the result when only American schools take part in this project.
