Sneak peek: ScienceOpen’s users from around the globe

Sneak peek: ScienceOpen’s users from around the globe

Our developers have been busy again at ScienceOpen. We are excited to announce the new geolocation-based usage data for our hosting customers that we have been working on. Our customers come from all over the world – but so do our users!

More insights into our journals’ readership

Via IP address we can now drill down into the usage data on the platform and track the country and institute of users of our hosted journals. IP addresses are not stored in our database and are only used once to look up the country and institute of origin before being deleted. This data will provide editors and publishers with new insights into their journals’ readership. The first reports for January 2022 data will be delivered in early February, but we are happy to give you a sneak peek into this data now.
