1,000,000 downloads


A MESSAGE FROM PVC RESEARCH
Professor Chris Del Mar

Downloads x 1,000,000!

The University has passed a very important milestone: the world has downloaded more than 1 million full-text downloads of Bond research ‘outputs’ (versions of articles and papers permitted for open access) in the e-publications@bond repository. The repository was launched by the VC on 21 November 2006. So this means on average downloads of ~ 780 Bond research outputs / day. It is extraordinary to realise how much the world is downloading our research, and prompts us to speculate on who they are and why they are so interested.

Congratulations to our researchers for generating research that elicits such attention, and to Information Services for enabling the service so effectively.

PS - New contributions from our academic staff are always welcome - please contact the e-publications coordinator for further information.
