If you have provided Research Online with the Open Access versions of your published papers etc., you will find this an exciting feature.
The Author Dashboard is a personalized reporting tool for authors with works published in Digital Commons. As an author, you can easily access your dashboard to view up-to-date download information for every work you publish, as well as global insights into the sources of readership.
The Dashboard will quickly provide readership and download statistics and visualisation for a body of work or for individual articles. Explore recent data, all-time, or choose a custom date range. You also have options to share your data with others and export statistics for use in external applications.
