The components on the Readership tab will each adjust to match the dashboard’s current scope and date range.
Readership Distribution Map
This geographic visualization shows the sources of your institution’s SelectedWorks readership on an interactive world map. Click the numbers in the download clusters or use the +/- zoom tool for a more granular view. A pin marker will appear when all downloads are from the same location. Clicking the pin provides a detailed list of downloads.
Drag with the hand tool to move the map. Click the view larger icon () to expand the size of the map, which can be particularly useful on a mobile device.
The Institutions table displays academic institutions, organizations, businesses, and government agencies where full texts were downloaded, based on IP address. Each institution is listed with its total downloads.
Start typing in the table’s search box to find a particular institution or institution type, and use the arrow to the left of an institution to view individual article downloads for that location. If you see an institution in an incorrect category, tell us about it! Click the note icon next to the institution type for an expanded institution and complete the form.
At any point, click Export to download the currently visible data to a CSV file.
The percentage of downloads per institution type appears in the color-coded graph at the top. Click an institution type or color block to filter the list by type, or select from the Filter by type menu.
To return to viewing all institution types, select “Show All” from the menu.
The Countries table shows top downloads by country, which are easily broken down by region or state using the interactive map. Click a country on the map to see a regional or state distribution of that country’s readership and to populate the table with the regions displayed.
Hovering over a region on the map provides a quick view of the associated downloads. To return to the world map, click the “Back to World” button.
Start typing in the search box to find locations in the table. Expand an entry to see which articles were downloaded in that country or region. Click Export to download currently visible data to a CSV file.
The sites listed here reveal the sources of inbound traffic to full texts. Search for referrers and export current results to a CSV file. Note that some valid downloads do not have associated referral data, because not all users pass along referral information. Over the years, fewer and fewer browsers and search engines have passed along this information, so referrer numbers now include only a small fraction of total traffic.
