Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Institutional Repository Usage Statistics UK (IRUS-UK) is a Jisc-funded project that serves as a national repository usage statistics aggregation service, which aims to provide article download statistics from UK repositories. At CORE, a full-text aggregation service, we wanted to present the information regarding the manuscripts’ downloads to repository managers and therefore, we have integrated into the CORE Repositories Dashboard, a content management tool designed for repository managers, the IRUS-CORE statistics. Currently, there are 93 repositories participating in IRUS-UK project that are also harvested in CORE.
