eResearch statistics for February 2014

Total number of items listed in eResearch = 2858

Total number of visitors to eResearch = 2929

Last month Research Support published a blog post that was about the open access papers that were downloaded from eResearch in January 2014. This post is taking a different approach and the first list is that of the eResearch listings that were most accessed. The majority of the papers included here do not have open access papers attached because at Queen Margaret University, we have taken the view that all of our researchers' publications should be listed in our eResearch repository, rather than just the ones that we have open access papers for. In fact, only papers 8 and 9 listed are OA. A very quick search was run in Google Scholar to see how many citations each of the papers listed had generated. This number is next to each paper in red. The second list, as was published last month, is the top ten downloaded open access papers.

It is difficult to draw direct comparisons between the two lists and reach any real conclusions, however it is interesting to note that the most highly cited paper in the open access list has received 251 citations according to Google Scholar whereas the most highly cited non-OA paper has received 79.
