This Open Access Week we celebrate the 10th anniversary of ORA, the University of Oxford’s institutional repository (2007-2017) and a cornerstone of open access at Oxford. By happy coincidence ORA has just reached some milestone figures for usage and content:
- Over 1 million visits to ORA site.
- Over 200,000 records in ORA.
- Over 27,000 full text items currently available for download.
- Over 21,000 full text deposits made between October 2015 and October 2017.
- Downloads up by 55% over the past year.
An infographic to mark ORA’s first decade, plus a poster tracing its history, can be viewed on the ORA LibGuide. Happy birthday ORA and here’s to continued growth and usage in the next decade!
