Each month we highlight the month’s download numbers and a few of the most-downloaded articles in the collection, and we feature stats and comments from a particular country. You may have noticed that this month’s number of articles in the OA collection (50,337) is fewer than last month’s number (53,701). We realized our method for gathering data was not the most accurate and have now corrected it. Apologies!
