English abstract

The profitability of electronic information involves relationship between quantity and quality of content supply, use and cost made. Global unloading data and unloading data by titles of journals distributed by Emerald at the University Leon, between the years 2005-2009, are studied. Based on the overall usage statistics during this period, we analyze the consumption trends, concentration and dispersion. Moreover, identifying the most downloaded titles, they are compared to the subscriptions that have shaped the paper collection of ULE and explore their reputation or Impact Factor. An evaluation of the efficiency and profitability of the investment relating the use of content and the price of the package is made.

Spanish abstract

La rentabilidad de la información electrónica supone la interrelación entre cantidad y calidad de los contenidos ofertados, consumo realizado y coste. Se estudian los datos de descargas globales y por títulos de las revistas electrónicas distribuidas por Emerald en la Universidad de León entre los años 2005-2009. Partiendo de las estadísticas de uso global en este período, se analiza la evolución del consumo, su concentración y dispersión. Asimismo, identificando los títulos más descargados se comparan con las suscripciones que han conformado la colección en papel de la ULE y se indaga en su reputación o FI (Factor de Impacto). Se valora la eficiencia y la rentabilidad de la inversión relacionando las variables de uso de los contenidos y precio del paquete.
