ORBi has been collecting statistical data since its creation in 2008. It is therefore possible, with the help of a few graphs, to visualise the scientific production of the University of Liège and its influence throughout the world. But in addition, to show the importance of Open Access in terms of visibility and development of collaborations.

The ORBi statistics module has been revamped with:

  • new graphics thanks to a more detailed exploitation of the collected data
    • Share of Open Access in the databases
    • Authors with the largest number of open access archives
    • Distribution by type of document or by discipline
    • Citations
  • new interface improvements 
    • Adaptation to the "mobile" setting
    • A more modern and ergonomic presentation
    • Faster generation of statistics pages 
    • Improvement of export options (jpeg, csv, pdf, url)

These improvements concern not only the public statistics but also those proposed to ULiège authors via their MyORBi and those related to archived references.

Special attention has been paid to the consistency and reliability of the information with ORBi data:

  • Continuously updated
  • Recorded in Counter format

But also :

  • Refinement of the referral list (origin of visitors)
  • Filtering of robots access to provide only the accesses and downloads realised by real people, based on a "black" list established from: 
    • The list provided by the Counter standard
    • The internal list of DSpace
    • Completed by an exploitation of the logs

In addition to ORBi statistics, the user can also access alt-metrics data via the badge implemented in the detailed reference display. 
This indicator makes it possible to visualise the impact of the publication in social media (tweets, mentions on blogs, Wikipedia, Dimensions citations).
