This collection is for the curation of regular statistics updates compiled by the University of St Andrews Library. The statistics are specific to the University repository, and are shared with the University of St Andrews academic community to help raise awareness of the benefits of open access.

The download statistics are derived from IRUS-UK "a standards-based statistics aggregation service for repositories in the UK, enabling them to share and compare usage statistics using the COUNTER standard."

In each report we show the most recent monthly downloads, dividing the content into 2 main types - Research publications and Theses - to reflect the scope of the repository. We also provide current content figures, to show the growing number of items that are being made freely available by University of St Andrews researchers.

The most recent statistics can be viewed here, where the data is displayed in HTML so users can see more detail in each of the graphs.
