2009 Institutional arXiv Usage Data

The following table is a compilation of arXiv downloads for calendar year 2009 for the 200 heaviest user institutions. See also arXiv Support.
Caveats: While we have taken considerable effortto extract reliable download data representing unique full-text downloads by real users, there are many factors which affect
accuracy. These factors include: 1) the data is from the main arXiv site and the most highly used mirrors, other mirrors account for few percent of total usage, 2) we have counted only
one download per article and host per month to avoid misleading figures from repeat downloads of the same article (may lead to undercounting with shared machines and for users
behind caches and proxies), 3) we have attempted to identify and remove robot or automated downloads from the count (false positives lead to undercounting, failing to identify
robots leads to overcounting), and 4) we include here only downloads that appearto be from an institution based on the DNS name of the client for patterns that we recognize
(clients with host names that don't resolve or off-campus accesses will lead to undercounting, failure to recognize institutional domain names will exclude those institutions and
undercountthe total institutional downloads). We have identified 7.8 million downloads from institutional domain names out of a total of 30 million downloads in 2009.

Federal Legislation

2008 NIH initiative mandates all funded
investigators to submit an electronic
version of their final, peer-reviewed
manuscripts upon acceptance for
publication no later than 12 months after
the official date of publication.
Applicable to:

Hagen, S.J. Microfluidic devices for studying genetic
compentence in streptococcus
(Articles resulting from this grant will be submitted
to PubMed Central repository)

Federal Research Public Access Act
(FRPAA) introduced in 2009

Requires 11 U.S. government agencies with research expenditures
over $100 million to make manuscripts of journal articles
resulting from that research publicly and freely available via the
Internet within 6 months of commercial publication.
Agencies: Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense,
Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland
Security, Transportation, EPA, NASA, and NSF.

Potential impact on Physics PIs: Avery, Biswas, Buchler, Chen,
Dorsey, Dufty, Field, Furic, Hebard, Hershfield, Hirschfeld,
Konigsberg, Matcheva, Meisel, Mitselmakher, Muller, Ramond,
Rinzler, Saab, Stanton, Stewart, Tanner, Whiting, Woodward
