March 2018 | Two new COUNTER reports are now available to download in your Library Admin area of SpringerLink, showing usage and denials of SpringerProtocols content.

February 2019 | In January 2019, COUNTER released its fifth Code of Practice (COUNTER 5) which “focuses on improving the clarity, consistency, and comparability of usage reporting."

This first iteration of COUNTER 5 reports are currently being audited in order to ensure that we comply with the COUNTER Code of Practice Release 5. You can access the COUNTER 5 reports are via the Springer Nature Librarian Portal.
