Article Report 4 (AR4)This report enables you to view the number of successful article downloads by month for participating repositories. The report can be filtered to limit the results to a selected journal or repository. It can be run for an individual month or over a number of months and can be output in HTML, TSV or CSV formats. The results are paginated and can be sorted as required by clicking the appropriate column headings. NB: If no filters are applied it is best to run the report for an individual month, otherwise it may timeout!
