Good news: I have learnt how one can collect article reading statistics from the VPHA-reading-overview-file with Google spreadsheets functions. This makes it easy to visualise the status of commenting, whether individual papers have 0, 1, 2, 3, or 3+ comments. Below you find the current situation. With time, I plan to report on trends on how the reading evolves.
|Statistics of the number of VPHA comments per ALD publication, on the basis of VPHA-reading-overview-file, as of 7.1.2016. Made with Google spreadsheets.|
At the moment, most publications have 0 comments (90) or 1 comment (157). It is preferred to have at least 3 comments for each publication, so there is still work to do. Twenty (20) papers have the desired number of 3 comments. There are ten (10) papers with 3+ comments. That many people want to read and comment on the same publication, probably is some indication of that publication's general significance. Still, let's make sure that all publications receive the attention they deserve and get preferably three comments.
