It seems from observation of the site stats and the Springer-Open figures for accesses, I am experiencing a spike of activity (28/8/2016).
Just to let you know this blog is active
and latest accesses are:
Paper 1 has broken 1200! Rising to 1215!
Paper 2: 641
Paper 3: and this is the crux, 553 accesses which means theoretically I have had over 550 readers of my thesis in less than 4 months.
