10 most popular datasets in March

Again it is time to present you the most popular datasets of last month,
based on . 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.

Number 1: 7610 resolutions
Figure 7 raw data: Effect of variable exposure to PTHrP (1-36) on bone nodules and AP activity in high plating density cultures. (2013)
Suzan Kamel, John Yee.

Number 2: 7280 resolutions

Suzan Kamel, John Yee.

Number 3: 6433 resolutions

So the top 10 are 5 datasets, 1 medical study, 2 presentations and 2 textual objects.

Generally in March we had around 750,000 resolutions in total.

    So the top 10 are 4 datasets, 1 course material, 2 presentations and 3 textual objects, although number 9 could propably count as data about a text-object ­čÖé
    Generally we again had around 500,000 resolutions in total.
    Interestingly none of the top 11 from January is in the top 10 of February, which indicates that the resolutions here come from actual interest in the objects, not just from clicking on the top 11 of January…
