IOE Institutional Repository full text downloads for October

The IOE Institutional Repository includes full texts which are, whenever possible, made available for download.  There are 940 such full texts at the moment out of a total of 6000 items in the repository.  This October has been a record month for downloads – 13,171.  This is both a very dramatic increase on previous months  and is also, I think,  a relatively high total for what is still a small institutional repository.

Below are the ten most downloaded items for October 2010.  The article in the number  one position is unusual in two respects – it is published in a journal to which the Library only has a print subscription (the journal is of course available in digital form to all IOE staff and students through the Senate House Library) and it is by 13 authors. I don’t know of any simple way of discovering what the IOE co/multiple authorship rate is, but I don’t remember seeing anything like this number of authors recently. Is it an IOE  record?
