Most Accessed LRA Items (July 2012)

Posted by gazjjohnson on 1 August, 2012

After a break for a month or so while we sorted out some underlying problems with our stats module, we’re back with the top 10 LRA items for the month of July 2012.

  1. New insights into the crustal structure of the England, Wales and Irish Seas areas from local earthquake tomography and associated seismological studies (Hardwick, Anthony James) (2381/8615)
  2. Mobile technologies and learning (Naismith, Laura et al) (2381/8132)
  3. UKCoRR – At the Heart of the UK Open Access Repository Landscape (Johnson, Gareth J.) (2381/10872)
  4. TEM studies of microstructural evolution in creep exposed E911 (Qin, G. et al) (2381/4740)
  5. The Relationship of Principals/Directors’ Leadership Styles, as Perceived by the Faculty, to the Job Satisfaction of the Faculty Members in a Public University of Punjab, Pakistan (Amin, Muhammad) (2381/10774)
  6. The challenges of insider research in educational institutions: wielding a double-edged sword and resolving delicate dilemmas (Mercer, Justine) (2381/4677)
  7. Social inclusion, the museum and the dynamics of sectoral change (Sandell, Richard) (2381/52)
  8. Facebook, social integration and informal learning at university: ‘It is more for socialising and talking to friends about work than for actually doing work’ (Madge, Clare et al) (2381/9016)
  9. Development of Advanced Ferritic Steels for High Efficiency Power Generation Plant (Qin, Guixiang) (2381/9944)
  10. The Development of Nurture Groups in Secondary Schools (Colley, David Rodway) (2381/10132)

And I’ll try not to look too happy that in this, my final stats report, one of my own papers has shown up in the list. The power of positive use of social media again to promote, and the power of open access to enable readers beyond the publisher paywall to access the text.

In terms of the countries that have accessed LRA items the most, the top 10 looks like this.

  1. United Kingdom
  2. United States
  3. India
  4. Germany
  5. Australia
  6. China
  7. Canada
  8. Malaysia
  9. Japan
  10. France

Most used repository items for Nov 2010

Posted by gazjjohnson on 2 December, 2010

 

 

Once again we have a rich collection of theses and other full text materials.  What is most interesting is that the top item has almost 400 downloads in a month (or about 100 times the lifetime borrowing rate of a printed thesis!) which is pretty astonishing when all is said and done.

  1.  Ancient Egyptian astronomy: timekeeping and cosmography in the new kingdom (Symons, Sarah) (Thesis, Mathematics)
  2. Female Fandom in an English ‘Sports City’: A sociological study of female spectating and consumption around sport (Pope, Stacey Elizabeth) (Thesis, sociology)
  3. Visions of a new Jerusalem: predictive fiction in the Second World War (Hooley, Tristram) (Thesis, English)
  4. Pedagogical models for podcasts in higher education (Edirisingha, Palitha et al) (Conference paper, BDRA)
  5.  Social inclusion, the museum and the dynamics of sectoral change (Sandell, Richard) (Musum Studies, Article)
  6.  The costs of Activity-Based Management (Armstrong, Peter) (Management, Article)
  7. Teaching presentation skills to undergraduates: Students’ evaluations of a workshop course. (Colman, Andrew M.) (Psychology, Article)
  8.  Shifting (A)Genders: Gender, Disability and the Cyborg in American Women’s Science Fiction (Smith, Susan Ursula Anne) (English, Thesis)
  9. Writing up and presenting qualitative research in family planning and reproductive health care (Pitchforth, Emma et al) (Health Sciences, Article)
  10.  Directing democracy: the case of the John Lewis partnership (Cathcart, Abigail) (Management, Thesis)

Meanwhile there’s been a bit of movement in the top countries accessing the LRA – even if it’s the same 10 as last month.

1 United Kingdom
2 United States
3 Canada
4 Germany
5 India
6 Italy
7 China
8 France
9 Australia
10 Iran
