What you need to know about the COUNTER 5 platform reports
COUNTER 4 data will not be supported come January 2021
As part of our continued work to fully migrate into COUNTER 5 (C5) code of practice, and as highlighted in previous emails, we will no longer be supporting COUNTER 4 (C4) data for SpringerLink and nature.com. You will be able to temporarily access C4 reports until 31 March 2021, but the data will only be provided up until December 2020. As of mid-April these C4 reports will not be provided any longer and we have fully switched to C5 for SpringerLink and nature.com data. This update does not apply to database reports, since we have yet to launch these reports in the C5 format. Before we remove the possibility to download C4 data we will make historic C4 data available in C5 format, so you can compare patron activity on the platforms for the past five years.
