COUNTER for Publishers & Vendors

biginfographicAcademic and other libraries across the world use COUNTER usage reports to inform purchasing decisions and to demonstrate the value of the library and its resources. COUNTER sets and maintains the standard known as the Code of Practice to ensure that publishers and vendors are able to provide usage data to their customers in a format they want; compare the relative usage of different delivery channels; aggregate data for customers using multiple delivery channels; learn more about genuine usage patterns.

Please read our guide to becoming a COUNTER compliant content provider. You will also find our interview with Paul Meehan on top tips for compliance, a helpful read.

Publishers and vendors are strongly recommended to comply with Code of Practice and to support COUNTER by joining as a member.
