BURO - how many times have your items been downloaded?

We have implemented some exciting new software in BURO called IRStats which allows researchers to see how many visitors have accessed each of their full text Open Access research outputs.

  • Select More Statistics for this Item to see how users are finding your research outputs and using which search terms.
The newly added BU e-theses are already proving popular as is the work of BU academics who have added full text open access copies of their research outputs. Contact your Subject Librarian for help and advice on how to add legal open access copies of your work and attract more citations.
