COUNTER Code of Practice Release 5 – update

The slides below were presented at the Charleston Library Conference on 4 November. They provide an overview of the work to date in drafting Release 5 of the COUNTER Code of Practice. The slides include information about:

  • new reports – (fewer reports but more with more flexibility)
  • metric types and related attributes
  • report formats – (providing consistency between reports)
  • sample use cases – COUNTER R5 reports in action
  • the project timeline


Please note that the reports, metric types and formats are not final, they are draft for discussion. We will be consulting with you more formally in the first quarter of next year, but meanwhile if you have any initial feedback, please send it to:
