DigitalKoans Update

In March, I was diagnosed with a severe case of elderly-onset rheumatoid arthritis. Working with three pharmacies, it took a month to get appropriate medications due to an extreme Hydroxychloroquine shortage.

My condition has significantly improved, but it is unpredictable on a day-to-day basis. I’ll be reevaluating the continuation of DigitalKoans on 9/1/2020. Note that I have stopped my regular postings to my LinkedIn Digital Curation group.

I’ve been informed by my hosting service that it is impossible to change Digital Scholarship’s log retention period for my business-level account from daily retention to any longer period. (Hosting service was changed early this year.)

Consequently, here are the final use statistics for Digital Scholarship. From April 2005 through December 2019, Digital Scholarship had over 20 million visitors from 242 Internet country domains, over 100.7 million file requests, and over 76 million page views. Excluding spiders, there were over 12.2 million visitors from 242 Internet country domains, over 59 million file requests, and over 35.9 million page views.

Stay safe and keep up the good work of supporting open access and research data curation.
