When I announced the trade paperback version of Open Access and Libraries, and the free final PDF version available from Lulu, I didn’t provide any information on how often the various preview versions had been viewed or downloaded…because of a temporary reporting problem.
That problem’s been solved, and here are the numbers, for what they’re worth:
- The “html epub” version was viewed/downloaded 304 times.
- The “rtf epub” version was viewed/downloaded 78 times.
- The draft PDF version was downloaded 155 times
- So far, the final epub version has been viewed/downloaded 60 times
- Two copies of the trade paperback have been purchased so far, but one of those was mine.
- I have no way of knowing how many people have downloaded the final PDF version, apparently: either Lulu doesn’t report free downloads as sales, or there haven’t been any.
No attempt to draw conclusions. Should there be?
