The COUNTER Code of Practice

COUNTER’s library, publisher and vendor members have contributed to the development of Release 4 of the Code of Practice.

The Code of Practice enables publishers and vendors to produce consistent and credible usage data. This allows libraries to compare data received from different vendors and publishers, and to understand and demonstrate the value of the electronic resources to which they subscribe.

Release 4 is the current Code of Practice and the requirement for COUNTER-compliance.

Note: The Usage Reports categorised as Standard in Table 1 above are those reports that vendors must provide (depending on the types of content covered) in order to be COUNTER compliant. Optional reports are not required for COUNTER-compliance, but are designed to enable more detailed usage reporting, where vendors have the capability to do this.

4.1 Example usage reports

Examples are provided below of the COUNTER usage reports, in separate sections for Journals, Databases, Books and Reference Works, and for Multimedia content. While these examples are in Excel format, (See SectionThe first level of subdivision of a bookA non serial publication of any length available in print (in hard or soft covers or in loose-leaf format) or in electronic format or reference workAn authoritative source of information about a subject: used to find quick answers to questions. For example dictionary, encyclopedia, directory, manual, guide, atlas, bibliography, index. For example a chapterA subdivision of a bookA non serial publication of any length available in print (in hard or soft covers or in loose-leaf format) or in electronic format or of some categories of reference work; usually numbered and titled 4.3 below for other report delivery options), primarily for visualisation purposes, all COUNTER usage reports must be available in XML, irrespective of other formats provided. Reports must comply exactly with the formats specified in order to be COUNTER compliant.

In all the usage reports listed below the Reporting PeriodThe total time period covered in a COUNTER usage report Total column has been moved from the column at right-hand side of the report, which it occupied in previous Releases, to a column on the left-hand side of the monthly data columns. This move has been made to ensure that the Reporting PeriodThe total time period covered in a COUNTER usage report Total column is at a fixed place in each report, irrespective of the number of months of data being reported. This facilitates the automated harvesting and processing of the usage reports.

The majority of the Excel examples provided below show usage data for the months of January, February and March. This limited range of months has been selected simply to allow the reports to be displayed clearly on the pageOne side of one leaf (of a bookA non serial publication of any length available in print (in hard or soft covers or in loose-leaf format) or in electronic format, reference work, journalA serial that is a branded and continually growing collectionA subset of the content of a service; a collection is a branded group of online information products from one or more vendors that can be subscribed to/licensed and searched as a complete group of original articles within a particular discipline, etc.) or the written or pictorial matter it contains within this document. In reality the usage reports will show columns for every month during the Reporting PeriodThe total time period covered in a COUNTER usage report, to the end month selected. Where the end month selected is in the future, the relevant columns should be shown with no data in the cells

  1. The XML schema covering the above usage reports is available on the NISO/SUSHIStandardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative website (http://www.niso.org/schemas/sushiStandardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative/#counter ). This schema can be used with the SUSHIStandardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative and COUNTER_SUSHI schemas to retrieve any of the COUNTER reports (journals, databases, books, reference works, consortiumThe consortium through which the institution or user obtained online access. A consortium is defined by a range of IP addresses that may be in specific groupings (e.g. institutes) A group of institutions ("consortium members"), defined by a group of IP address ranges, for which collective and individual usage may be reported). The flexibility of the schema is achieved through the use of several self-defining elements. Rather than enumerate the allowed values within the schema, these values are defined outside of the schema to allow new reports and metrics to be added without needing to update the schema each time. The values for the “Report” data element are listed in the Report Registry (http://www.niso.org/workrooms/sushiStandardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative/reports/ ).

  • XML versions of the reports must be available for harvesting via the SUSHIStandardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative protocol within 4 weeks of the end of the reporting periodThe total time period covered in a COUNTER usage report.

4.4 Web browsers

Usage statistics reported in the COUNTER reports must be consistent and not dependent on the browsers used by customers. As a minimum vendors must support current versions, compliant with World Wide Web ConsortiumThe consortium through which the institution or user obtained online access. A consortium is defined by a range of IP addresses that may be in specific groupings (e.g. institutes) A group of institutions ("consortium members"), defined by a group of IP address ranges, for which collective and individual usage may be reported (WC3) standards, of the following web browsers: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.


How to become Counter Compliant

All academic libraries across the world use and trust COUNTER usage reports to inform renewal and new purchasing decisions, to inform faculty about the value of the library and its resources and to understand user behaviour and improve the user experience.

Counter will help publishers and vendors to become compliant. The Friendly Guide to COUNTER and The Friendly Technical Guide to COUNTER provide the information you will need to start the process.

Audit Process

To comply with the Code of Practice, publishers and vendors must be independently audited within six months of signing the Declaration of COUNTER Compliance, and annually thereafter.

There are two approved COUNTER auditors:

COUNTER will also accept an audit by any Chartered Accountant (UK), CPA (USA) or their equivalent elsewhere.
