Download statistics on open access articles now available

The MIT Libraries have launched a new service offering download data for articles collected under the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy.

MIT authors can log in and see how many times each of their own papers has been downloaded, and from which countries. Aggregated download numbers are available to anyone inside or outside MIT, including views of download data by department, lab, or center.
