[EP-tech] Re: 2 IRStats Questions



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.



Thanks!


Greg

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?



Cheers,

John

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?

Hello,



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??
