An overview of the development of full-text downloads since 2013 (Fig. 1) shows how great the interest in the content of memo—Magazine of European Medical Oncology is—an interest that is growing steadily: The number of full-text downloads in 2013 was 10,239, had already reached 20,936 in 2016 and can be expected to reach 32,000 in 2017.

However, the analysis of access by geographic origin (Fig. 2) is at least as impressive as the number of visitors, since this shows that memo—Magazine of European Medical Oncology is an internationally recognized and appreciated publication. In fact, 34% of all full-text downloads come from Europe, 30% from North America, 27% from the Asia-Pacific region and the remaining 9% from South America, Africa and the Middle East.
