Counter 4 Compliant Usage Reports

Accessible ArchivesAccessible Archives, Inc. and Scholarly iQ are pleased to announce that your Accessible Archives, Inc. usage data reports have been upgraded and are now using the new COUNTER Release 4 (R4) standards. These new COUNTER 4 reports are the latest set of usage reports that can be used by librarians to ensure the independent and accurate reporting of publishers’ usage statistics.

The COUNTER Release 4 standards contain the following new features and focus on improving the delivery of consistent, credible and comparable usage statistics:

  • A single, integrated Code of Practice covering journals, databases, books and reference works.
  • Enhancements of the SUSHI (Standardised Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) protocol designed to facilitate its implementation by vendors and its use by librarians
  • A modified “Journal Report 5,” which reports on the usage of full-text article requests by year and by journal from a library’s acquired archival content.
  • Modified Database Reports, in which the previous requirement to report Session counts has been dropped, and new requirements, to report Record Views and Result Clicks, have been added. (Database Report 3 has also been renamed Platform Report 1).
  • Flexibility in the usage reporting period that allows you to specify a date range for your usage reports

You can access your Accessible Archives, Inc. COUNTER R4 Reports quickly and easily by visiting www.accessiblereports.com and entering your Accessible Archives, Inc. username and password to log in to the service. You will first have to register, then a new password and user name will be issued to you. Please be aware that the historical statistics have been reprocessed to improve accuracy and ensure COUNTER R4 compliancy from 1/2013 onward. Therefore, historical counts may change in the reports. You can access the Scholarly iQ website for additional information.

Unlimited Priorities and NCSU Libraries Partner to Create Model Data Mining Agreement

Cape Coral, FL (March 24, 2015)Unlimited Priorities LLC, a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries, and The North Carolina State University Libraries (NCSU Libraries), have collaborated to open up Accessible Archives’ databases for text and data mining for client libraries.

Text and data mining (TDM) encompasses dozens of computationally-intensive techniques and procedures used to examine and transform data and metadata. At its core, TDM uses high-speed computing technology to examine large data sets in order to recognize and model meaningful patterns and rules.

Unlimited Priorities orchestrated this initiative at the request of Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head, Collection Management, at The NCSU Libraries. Mr. Orcutt explained: “Through this model agreement, Unlimited Priorities and Accessible Archives have become even stronger partners with libraries in supporting the current and emerging needs of researchers. They quickly and positively responded to the opportunity for a win-win relationship in this area. Not only does this agreement open up large and high-quality historical datasets for mining by our users, but as scholars come to understand this content in ways that only such computational research makes possible, the value of these resources for academia correspondingly increases.”
