From the U. of Tennessee Center for Information & Communication Studies:

Chancellor’s Professor Carol Tenopir, Associate Professor Suzie Allard and Adjunct Professor David Nicholas from the College of Communication and Information have received a $244,000 grant from Elsevier to lead a team of international researchers on a one-year project, “Beyond Downloads.”

The project will look at how scholarly electronic articles are downloaded, saved and shared by researchers. Sharing in today’s digital environment may include links posted on social media, like Twitter, and in blogs or via email. Having a realistic estimate of this secondary use will help provide a more accurate picture of the total use of scholarly articles.
