UOW’s open access research repository, Research Online, has reached one million full text article downloads since the site went live in 2006. Research Online allows anyone to download papers and articles by UOW academics, including student theses and research papers from a wide range of areas. Manager of Repository Services, Michael Organ said the millionth download is quite a landmark for the university. “One million downloads is a lot of people accessing our papers,” he said. The millionth paper to be accessed was a 2006 conference paper by Faculty of Informatics academics Katina Michael, A. McNamee and MG Michael entitled ‘The Emerging Ethics of Humancentric GPS Tracking and Monitoring.’
