What's Hot on IUPUIScholarWorks: Looking at a Year (2012-2013)

IUPUIScholarWorks serves as the institutional repository for open access to works by IUPUI's faculty, students and community. If you're at IUPUI and you have something you want to post, join, look us up or send us a note.

Now that six months have passed since the end of the 2012/2013 school year, I thought it would be fun to see what we made available last year and how people are using it. Last year (July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2013) IUPUIScholarWorks collected 513 articles, theses, dissertations, posters, learning objects, reports and historical items. During that year, the repository received 57,995 unique visitors and 198,031 pageviews. The hottest submissions for the year currently include, by unique pageviews (PVs):

  1. Keller, J. Gregory. 2005. The moral thinking of Macbeth. Philosophy and Literature 29 (1): 41–56. http://hdl.handle.net/1805/2916. (over 234 PVs)

Google Scholar searchRemember, however, that pageviews are just one way of looking at use. For example, Meagan Lacy's "Going 'Slow'" poster can be downloaded in a single click from Google Scholar. Downloads are not counted as "pageviews." Thus far, Meagan's poster has been downloaded over 270 times in a mere six months. Wow! "Going slow" is going fast.

Congratulations to all our IUPUI authors who submitted items to IUPUIScholarWorks this year. Keep up the good work! -- Jere Odell
