How well used is SAS-Space ?

One of the recent new features of SAS-Space is the provision of download statistics for the materials that it holds, as PDF or in other formats. These are now shown at the foot of each item's page, under the Statistics tab. There is also a digest for the whole site.

Champion resource remains the Register of Research in Commonwealth Countries, from the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, the various files for which were downloaded 2371 times since October 2010.

The most read paper was The Limits of Self-awareness by Michael Martin, originally published in Philosophical Studies in 2004, with 359 downloads. (See the graph below)

The top dissertation was from the Institute for the Study of the Americas: Mulherres do morro: the representation of women in Brazilian funk (2009), with 343 downloads.

The installation of the IRStats software add-on for Eprints that makes this possible was generously funded by the Dean's Development Fund of the School. It was installed for us by Richard and Rory from ULCC's Digital Archives team.
