Improving the standard for credible, compatible and consistent usage statistics

COUNTER usage statistics are an essential tool for librarians in their evaluation of online resources and used to demonstrate of the value of the library. Publishers told us that they are eager to support librarians through the delivery of credible, compatible and consistent usage statistics, but that the COUNTER standard can be complex and costly to implement. We listened to their feedback and we are using it to inform the development of Release 5 of the COUNTER Code of Practice, which we will publish in the summer of 2017. The new release will see COUNTER move to a mode of continuous maintenance, and will reduce the number of reports required, clarify definitions and remove ambiguities. This session will explain the benefits of the new release and how COUNTER will support its implementation.
