NEW: Public stats now available for Research@StAndrews:FullText

We are delighted that we are now able to show usage statistics for content in our institutional repository, Research@StAndrews:FullText. Thanks to the services provided by the Scottish Digital Library Consortium (SDLC), we now have 'page views' and 'downloads' from Google Analytics integrated into our DSpace platform and publicly available.

Visitors to the repository can see statistics for individual items:
Statistics initially show how many times the metadata for an item has been viewed, and from the 'View Statistics' button users can see a breakdown by date range, plus the number of times the full text has been downloaded.
Visitors can also view the 'Top items' for a particular Collection:

with live links from the list of items to the most viewed item in that Collection.



To improve usability, links to the full text files have been moved to a more accessible position on the page, immediately above the Title.


Additional work has also been done to help capture more downloads that have been discovered via Google, and our overall statistics are already showing how we have recorded this traffic.
