The purpose of this article is to update an earlier study on the impact of nation‐wide access to 10,000 e‐journals in Iceland.
The data of usage from 2000 to June 2005 are analysed by publisher, user type and institution.
Growth of downloads continued to 2004 and peaked at almost half a million but appears to have levelled off in the first six months of 2005. Document supply continues to decline from its peak in 2000.
This is the first study that shows the impact of a large number of e‐journals being made available to the whole population of a country without restriction.
