[EP-tech] Antwort: Re: 2 IRStats Questions

Instead of using the id field (which contains usually the e-mail address, as said below), you can also use the name for set creation. In your irstats config file,
find the line 'use_ids' => 1 and change it to 'use_ids' => 0  . Then reprocess the whole statistics.

Hi Greg,
In the creator compound field, there’s normally space for name (family, given etc.), and also ‘email’.
This ‘email’ field is actually an id field – and is can be by some functionality as a key to groups things by – e.g. author views or author stats.
So, if the email field is set for some creators, and not for others – and your author stats view is configured to group by creators (rather than creators_name), this *might* explain what you’re seeing?

Hi John,
By Author IDs, do you mean Web of Science ResearcherID?? Or another kind of schema??
All our Master’s & PhD thesis’ authors are graduate students, so in most cases, they haven’t written or published any other documents.

Another thought:
Do ALL your authors have IDs?
Are the top authors the top authors that have a unique ID, whilst the top-paper-authors don’t have unique IDs?

Hi Greg,
There is the possibility that your top authors have multiple items which have each only been downloaded a lower number of times, but the total of which may be greater than the number of downloads each of your top items has received.
Hope that makes sense?

 [EP-tech] 2 IRStats Questions
We installed IRStats on our EPrints 3.3.13 test server. The 5 Most Downloaded Items DO NOT correspond with the 5 Top Authors. See attached gif. The TOP 5  counts also vary greatly for both tables.
It is Friday, so maybe I am missing something obvious, but shouldn’t the most downloaded items and top authors be identical. Unless there is another definition for Top Authors??
Thanks! Have a good week-end!

PS – Also, 16 834 downloads for our top PhD thesis seems to be a lot!! Given the rather precise subject of this document. Is there anyway of validating these crunched numbers??
