Ex Libris’ new bX Hot Articles to analyse scholarly usage data from researchers worldwide -

Library automation solutions provider Ex Libris Group, Israel, has announced the release of bX Hot Articles, a service that is part of the recently launched bX usage-based suite of services from Ex Libris. Updated monthly, Hot Articles identifies the 10 articles that researchers have selected the most in each discipline in recent weeks, as well as the 10 most popular articles overall. The service is free for non-commercial use.

Leading the way for scholarly exploration, bX Hot Articles helps users discover information that others have found helpful. As the service is based on usage data that is gathered without regard to publisher, platform, or institution, Hot Articles provides an objective picture of current global scholarly discourse.

In addition to online formats - HTML (tile), XML, JSON, RSS and Atom - the Hot Articles service is available as a mobile application for Android devices and shortly for iPhone. More than 450 institutions are already providing their users with full-text links from the Hot Articles mobile apps, which can be downloaded for free from online stores and from the Ex Libris Website.

bX Hot Articles was implemented and tested by a number of early adopters, including Harvard University and the University of Iowa in the United States, Denmark’s Aalborg University, Charles University in Prague in the Czech Republic, and Korea’s Seoul National University.
