A very pleasing set of search statistics for January with a total of 365,855 searches. Our previous record, for November, was 274,106 (with a lull in December due to Christmas). Find below a graph of our monthly search stats. What these stats show me is that there is a real desire for clinicians to access, easily and for free, high-quality medical literature.

As I mentioned at the start of December, when will our increase is search stats plateau? With work due to start on our latest batch of improvements, TRIP will continue to improve so, I imagine, users will continue to use us and spread the word. Given our lack of marketing budget we are effectively reliant on ‘word of mouth’ – making our search increases even more rewarding.
