COUNTER 5 release

COUNTER  has released its fifth Code of Practice (COUNTER 5), and we will soon be able to provide you with COUNTER 5 compliant usage data reports. Here's an update on our progress:

  • We plan to release our first COUNTER 5 reports in March, and will notify you as soon as these are available
  • With this first set of reports only usage statistics from SpringerLink and nature.com journals will be available, but we will continue to release more in short iterations over the next few months.
  • The data available for these first reports will be starting from January 2019.
  • All COUNTER 4 reports will continue to be accessible, and will be available at least until the end of 2020.
