Over the last year, thanks to the active involvement of the ULg researchers, ORBi has seen the number of its references growing from 10,000 (news of June 2009) to 40,000. Out of these, 25,000 are with full text. According to ROAR, this is the third highest growth rate among the 1,000 identified institutional repositories among the world.
Those references have been already visualized more than 650,000 times with more than 61,000 downloads (detailed statistics).
This 40,000 publication record coincides with the first use of ORBi as the only official reference for the assessing of the publication activity of ULg members, within the context of academic promotions.
