Again it is time to present you the most popular datasets of last month,
based on http://stats.datacite.org . So here are the top 10 datasets of March , registered by DataCite.
It is worth mentioning one reason that again most of the top 10 come from figshare. Whereas data published in classical data repositories is usually accessed directly through a search at the data center without using the DOI resolution, publishing the DOI name is the ideal advertising for any figshare content, thus increasing the resolution counts. That is one reason, why figshare DOI names seem to be so popular. Nevertheless the resolution number provide an interesting metric for usage of datasets.
