Virtus Scholar Platform monthly statistics
The editorial team of Virtus Interpress would like to introduce the report on the main indicators of our Virtus Scholar Statistics Platform for August 2022. This platform provides the key statistical data of the papers published in our journals. We consider that the researches are to be shared freely in the scholarly sphere. It is an important factor for our authors with regard to the paper’s citation, views and readability, etc. Also, this will enable the theoretical results to be practically applied in corporate governance. Our Platform Statistics is a part of our open access policy.
We present the results of our analysis concerning the views and downloads of the papers published in our journals in the last month. The statistics is divided into 2 parts: Article Views Statistics (views data counts starting from March 2017) and Geographical Statistics (downloads data counts starting from August 2018).

- in the current year – 265570;

As a result of the calculations, the number of views per 1 paper is:
- in the last month – 7.1;
- in the current year – 59.2;
