Accessible 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
