To continue with an examination of the impact of blogs I would like to share some numbers that were kindly shared with me by the AAA. Here (at the end of this post) is the table of downloads (for blog it is views) of articles from the AAA publications in 2012. The first thing that should jump out at you is the number of downloads of their flagship journals. For everyone who complains that academic journals are insular and not well read, 1.8 millions downloads for American Anthropologist is numbers I wish I had for any publication. It will be very interesting to see how Cultural Anthropology’s downloads change next year with their new Open Access policy.
