Today, 6 January 2013, is the fourth anniversity of AWOL. I will spend most of the day in aircraft or in airports. Not a very interesting thing to do.
AWOL has a steadily increasing readership - somthing over a million page views so far. Recent statistics are here.
2569 entries (beginning here), well over a thousand open access journals identified, countless digitized books cited, a constant stream of born digital scholarship tagged.
It's a tribute to you - the producers and
consumers of all of this - that a portal (though I prefer the anaolgy of
lens or prism) like AWOL is meaningful.
Congratulations to us all!
