Ever wondered how often your article has been read?

On May 7, 2007, the Journal of Vision launched a new feature: Download Reports.
These reports show the total unique downloads for each published article. They also provide a statistic - the DemandFactor - that estimates demand for an article independent of its age. And they provide a graph of the cumulative unique downloads as a function of days since publication. The statistics and graph are located in the new Download section of each article home page, and are also at a new Download Reports page at


We also provide tables of the top 20 articles in terms of total downloads and DemandFactor.

A more extensive discussion of these reports is provided in a brief editorial now online at


We hope that authors and readers will find these reports useful.
