Plotting accesses on the axis Part II

In an earlier post, I showed the accesses in the first month for the Blue Obelisk and Open Babel papers from late last year.

I should have stopped there.

Instead I decided to see how the recent Avogadro paper compared (Update 15/09/12: thanks to Geoff for filling in the missing points):

Hmphhh. BTW, Avogadro 1.1.0 was just released yesterday. Check out the new features.

BTW, I would really be nice if you could just do these comparisons on the JChemInf website!

It looks really good with the google spreadsheet! I guess that is the new way to present data on blogs. Amazing. And congrats on the number of view.

@Egon: +1

@Casper: The only problem is that the graph doesn't appear in syndicated feeds, even Google Reader, so might be better with a screenshot...

@noel Jan did not notice the interactive-ness on his iPad :-/

Well, the combination of a new release and an ACS meeting with the publication of the article didn't hurt. I also think it demonstrates that people like end-software more than toolkits.

I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

I can say that the Open Babel paper has over 39 citations in slightly under a year, according to Google Scholar. This is, perhaps a better metric for a toolkit.

I can add some of the intermediate points to your Google spreadsheet if you want.

@Geoff: I've shared the spreadsheet with you...

I got behind on my blog posts, it is great to see this plotted and to see the comparison with some related papers. It would be great to see some of this on the J. Chem. Inf. site, I was surprised to see our first citation turn up in the first month too.
