[EP-tech] Re: 2 IRStats Questions

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?

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??
