I’ll admit I’ve been very intrigued by the # of accesses statistic from J. Cheminf. I wish more journals showed this – it’s a very interesting way of measuring impact of particular articles.

Thanks to Noel O’Boyle’s recent blog post:

I’ve been able to finish up the graph of the first 30 days of the Avogadro paper (which is now #1 for the last 30 days and #19 for the last year). Not surprisingly, there was an exponential fall-off over the first few days, but we seem to be in the noisy long-tail now.

Hi Geoff,

Thanks for collecting the numbers, I had started but missed too many days.

I noticed we had more than 3,000 accesses in the first 30 days too, but

didn’t get the exact number - it is a shame they don’t offer a details page

with more numbers.
