Analytics

To access your analytics, select "Analytics" from the main search bar at the top of your page. Here you can see who is viewing your papers. In the top left you can select your time frame: the last 30 days or the last 60 days. On the upper-right you have more options. Here, you can make your analytics public, meaning any viewer can see who has seen your papers. You can also export your analytics as a CSV. 


Each sub-section of Analytics displays different information. For example, keywords will show the visitors that have found your papers by using keywords. External links on the other hand shows who has linked to your papers.
