‘Gathering the needles’

Alison Bobal and Jill Emery wanted to find out how they could use the data in COUNTER JR1-GOA reports. They looked at two years of JR1-GOA reports from a number of publishers. As a result, they were able to compare open access usage to overall usage. Both librarians will use the information to highlight the most-used open access titles during the 2016 Open Access Week events.

Their article about the project is now published in Insights: the UKSG journal. Read the full article to find out more about their methodology and findings:
