VOCEDplus really is international

VOCEDplus is truly a global resource, not only in terms of content, but usage around the world. While VOCEDplus is created in Australia and captures a large amount of Australian material, it is international in scope and thus also gathers a significant amount of research from overseas countries.

In terms of usage of VOCEDplus, approximately 70 per cent is by non-Australian users, in both developed and developing countries. Developing countries account for 22 per cent of total usage of VOCEDplus, and 1.5 per cent of usage comes from the least developed countries in the world.

While the biggest users of VOCEDplus are Australia, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, Philippines and Malaysia, it is also wonderful to know that we are helping researchers in countries such as Greenland, Timor-Leste, Mali, Turkmenistan, and Bolivia.
