Reduce bots hits on particular URLs

Hi everyone,

Our journal runs on OJS
Our application experiences many many hits on the following URLs, which I think come from bots:

My question is, is there something I can do to reduce those hits, as it counts towards the server quota?
I blocked some IP addresses, but this is not a permanent solution, as different bots come every so often.

Thank you so much in advance.

Hi Faruk

I find this site for detecting bots on the apache server. I never test this but it is worth testing it on your server to test if this method will work?
