Thanks to Felix Schönbrodt’s code to track CRAN R package downloads, I was able to see how often my packages statcheck and BayesMed were downloaded.

It turns out: quite a lot!

BayesMed: 9665 downloads since January 2014

statcheck: 4930 downloads since November 2014

Furthermore, it is quite clear when most academics are on holiday:

BayesMed is a package to perform a default Bayesian hypothesis test for mediation, correlation, and partial correlation. For more information, click here.

statcheck extracts statistics from articles and recalculates the p-value. For more information, click here.
