Back in March 2018 I found out that one of my articles ‘Cafe Nation: Exploring the growth of the UK cafe industry‘ in the journal Area had been identified as one of the most downloaded, and so was made free to read until January 2019. I was delighted to find out yesterday that for the second year running the article has been one of the most downloaded in the journal, and will now be made free to read until January 2020.
The paper received over 1,455 downloads in 2018, this compared to the average of 149 for the journal. As the map showing the location of these downloads shows, there’s quite a global spread of readers so far, particularly for a paper that was so UK focused.
If you have been one of the people that has downloaded the article already, thank you, and I hope you found it interesting. If you’re just stumbling upon this research and piece of writing now, then I hope you enjoy it, and that there is something in there relevant for your interests.
