Re: [EP-tech] IRStats for multiple files?

Hi Nick,

I think, in its default configuration, IRStats2 only counts downloads per eprint, so multiple files will get amalgamated into one count.  It ought to be possible to tweak it to count per individual file, but I haven’t tried or investigated deeply so it might be more complicated than my quick glance suggests.


I believe IRUS also only currently counts per eprint rather than per document, although there have been discussions about amending the tracker to include file level detail.

If you need separate download counts it would be easier to store them in separate eprints with cross-linking via related URL fields or similar mechanism.

Subject: [EP-tech] IRStats for multiple files?


Hello – an academic colleague has permission from her publisher to make a summary of findings available which I anticipate uploading to the same record alongside the (embargoed) AAM.


She would also like to track downloads of the summary document.


Will IRStats give me differential downloads for multiple files on a single record (though we can expect all downloads to be the summary while embargo applies)?


What about IRUS-UK?
