Usage Statistics Feature

by Tobias Frust on August 03, 2018

Thanks to the great folks @inveniosoftware we are able to offer usage statistics for record views and downloads. From now on two types of events are tracked:

  1. Visits to a record page.
  2. Download of a file.

Each record landing page is enhanced with a box containing information about the usage statistics. An example is shown in the image below.

But what about privacy?

All tracking is implemented in a way, that it is fully anonymized. Much more information about tracking details can be found in the relevant FAQ section.

The usage statistics is also compliant with available standards such as the COUNTER Code of Practice and the Code of Practice for Research Data Usage Metrics. By following those standards it is possible to compare metris of other compliant repositories.
