The following spreadsheet printout shows the titles (and links) of the 354 documents that were downloaded 40 or more times during May 2008, and a summary of all downloads for the month.

During May, 77% of all open-access documents were downloaded at least once.
The average number of downloads per available document was 7.73.
Total downloads increased by 15% over April.

Three milestones were reached during May:
• The number of open-access articles available exceeded 14,000
• For the first time, more than 100,000 downloads were furnished during the month.
• On or about May 28, 2008, the 1 millionth download (since inception) was furnished

Our thanks and appreciation go to all our contributors and users for making this level of success possible.
