    5. 5. Do users care? • Depends on the user. The feedback we get is invariably from – Authors – Editors – Librarians • Generally very positive, even when we miss stuff.
    6. 6. Do users care pt 2? • Depends on how the data is presented. – Small badge under title – 1% CTR – In tab – 0.5% CTR – In link in sidebar – 0.1% CTR – YMMV (wildly – hopefully this is obvious)
    7. 7. What stops publishers? • (understandable) fear that articles won’t have any attention • Depending on field editors & authors may not be asking for it • Cost* (financial, time, opportunity) * of implementation, not necessarily service
