The annual report for the Research Repository has had an overhaul this year.
The new report gives an overview of some of the activities that the team has been involved in over the last year, usage statistics for the Research Repository, and aims for the team going forward.
The report has been stripped down and rebuilt into a more streamlined and visually friendly format, and is available to view on the Research Repository.

It’s time for the most recent batch of termly statistics about the Research Repository (plus bonus pie chart!)
As of May 2017 there are currently 23,675 live records on the Research Repository. 690 of these were published in 2017.
The UK remains the country downloading the most from the Research Repository, followed by USA and China.
We have had to exclude visitor numbers from the stats as the software we use has decided it hates us. We are investigating alternatives and this should be back for the next report.
UWE Bristol members of staff can access the full statistics document on SharePoint. Please contact the team for any more information or with any suggestions for what you would like to see in future statistics reports.

We do not know exactly who downloads items from the Research Repository and this is how we like it. In order to get detailed user information, the Research Repository would require all users to set up an account and log in – and this is a barrier to open access.
