Digital publishing community Web site Scribd has a new feature called Scribd Stats, to help publishers and authors understand who is reading their work.

The Scribd blog explains more: “Get detailed info about how people are reading your stuff – From your home page, access a private ‘My Stats’ dashboard of information, including which of your docs people are reading and sharing most, how people are finding them, which docs they’re spending the most time on and much more….It’s like Google Analytics for your documents, but without ever having to add tracking or understand code.”

The feature launched in late November and is free to anyone who has uploaded content to a Scribd account.
