  • Providing more accurate data about where most traffic to the repository comes from, including which UWE pages
  • Listing which articles added in September – November 2014 have been most highly downloaded in the month they were added
  • Listing the percentages of full-text uploads to the repository in September – November.

Percentage growth among faculties has varied – ACE has dropped their full text percentage (from 48% in August 2014 to 45%) while other faculties have increased their percentage,with FET having the highest increase (from 62% in August 2014 to 66%).

Notable points

Twitter has become the most referred-from social media site, making up over half of social media referrals. September saw a particularly large number of records added to the repository with almost 400 records being added! The majority of records also remain self-deposited, with 87% of deposits in September – November being added by researchers.

There has also been change in the countries visiting the repository, with Ukraine and Japan appearing in the top ten downloaders since August 2014.

23 Things for Research Support: Research Repository Impact 

Posted by Anna Lawson | 0 comments
21Oct2014

This is the third of our test answers for the "23 Things for Research Support" activity, written by Veronica Morin-Quintal, our temporary Repository Administrator. The question we asked her was:

A researcher added a piece of research to the UWE Research Repository eight months ago. She would now like to know whether or not there has been any interest in it. How could she find this out?

Here's what Veronica found out:

What is an Institutional Repository? I must admit a few months ago my knowledge about it was very little. Yes I knew that the aim was to collect researchers’ work and store it electronically, but what I didn’t know is all the advantages that come with it.

Now do you know that one particular characteristic of an Institutional Repository is the accessibility to a variety of research materials (journal articles, conferences, thesis, reports) via the internet by anyone and free of charge; this is called “Open Access”. So can you imagine what this means from a researcher’s point of view?

Exactly - the Institutional Repository is a valuable tool that not only offers the possibility to expose her investigations worldwide but also to gain both personal and institutional reputation.  And from the University’s point of view reputation equals funding!

How can researchers monitor the renown of their research once they have deposited in the Research Repository? The answer points us to the open source software called e-prints in which UWE research repository is based. This software provides a vast range of functionality. One of them is the use of statistics; the researcher can follow closely the performance of her research by day, month or year. Each entry on the repository with a visible, full text item attached also displays a download graph. See http://eprints.uwe.ac.uk/7863/ for an example. Underneath this graph there is also a link to ‘More Statistics for this Item…’ where the researcher can obtain valuable information about which search engine her material has reached.  

In addition every researcher has all the necessary support from the Research Repository Team, with the aim to maximise the usability of the software to their very specific needs. (Note from the the Research Support Team: The Research Repository team has access to further repository statistics via a number of systems, and can collate and present a range of statistics for a variety of different purposes. Just get in touch with the team at eprints@uwe.ac.uk if you have a specific statistics query you would like help with).

You can obtain more information by visiting the UWE Research Repository web site (http://eprints.uwe.ac.uk).

If you study or work at UWE, and Veronica, Charley or Jane's post has got you interested in trying to answer your own question, just let the Research Support team know by e-mailing eprints@uwe.ac.uk. We have 23 questions, and some suggested webpages which you can use to help you get started.
