Background







Usage statistics are increasingly important as a validation for
our expenditure on e-resources
Nearly 8m journal articles accessed, 2.7m e-book chapters
accessed and 7.7m database searches
But always some missing (of which more later)
Collecting usage data is very time consuming
Jisc were aware of the difficulties for libraries and setup JUSP
to provide a single point for some of the bigger e-journal deals
(but by no means even close to all). JUSP statistics are fed into
KB+
JUSP/KB+ statistics are only for e-journals
Jisc also recognised that libraries have difficulties in keeping
track of what journals are included in ‘big deals’ and, as Jisc
negotiate these deals, they decided to create KB+ as a tool for
librarians.

And full lists for many publishers that don’t offer NESLi2 deals
Journal Lists are updated throughout the year with any
changes to deals/publishers.
Licences







Most licences are either Jisc licences or modelled on the
Jisc licence.
The Jisc licence is very liberal and designed to favour the
institution.
Most licences allow ‘walk-in’ user access.
Those providers that do not allow ‘walk-in’ user access
use Shibboleth (SSO) to control access.
Licences are displayed in KB+ in a ‘yes’ ‘no’ format.
Licence terms for Jisc deals have been assessed by Jisc
and it is their interpretation.
Other licences are by us but based on the Jisc
interpretations

JR1 Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests by Month
and Journal
JR1A Number of Successful Full-Text Article Requests from an
Archive by Month and Journal. JR1A is a subset of JR1.
Also newest report s include Open Access usage
JR1A – the period covered varies by publisher e.g. SAGE
content prior to 1999, Elsevier content prior to 1995.
JR1 is the most widely adopted e-resource report making ejournal reporting more comparable than, for example, database
and e-book reporting.
A small number of providers do not provide these reports.
Only JR1 reports are counted for SCONUL.
Database Statistics




Database Report 1(DB1)This provides Total Searches,
Result,Clicks and Record Views by Month and Database
Database Report 3 (DB3) (Also now called Platform Report
1) Searches, Result Clicks and Record Views by Month and
Platform
There used to be a SCONUL requirement for sessions (how
many times a database was used) but the introduction by most
universities of federated discovery tools skewed the sessions
to such an extent as to make them unreliable as an indicator of
use.
Sessions are much better indicators or usage than searches,
and both are far better than ‘hits’.
Database Statistics


Databases are less comparable than e-journals or e-books
due to some providers not providing COUNTER
comparable usage statistics.
Databases in both law and business are particularly
problematic though it also applies to small providers who
lack the resources to implement COUNTER statistics
reporting.
E-Book Statistics





Book Report 1 (BR1) Number of Successful Title
Requests by Month and Title
Book Report 2.(BR2) Number of Successful Section
Requests by Month and Title
BR1 is not favoured by SCONUL and they ask that
providers use BR2 as BR2 more comparable with JR1 for
journal articles
SCONUL have decided that BR1 can be converted to
BR2 by multiplying BR1 by 5.4.
Most e-book providers provide a range of other usage
information in addition to the COUNTER reports.

These are all saved in Q:\ER-Management\Statistics
They are subdivided by Database Stats, Journal Stats, Ebook
Stats
Some providers will have statistics in more than one folder
Organized by Provider - not publisher




except for JUSP stats – listed by publisher
Filename is in the format [name][year][reporttype]
They will be saved in the format that the provider publishes
them in – where possible we obtain .xls or .xlsx files but often
they will be .csv
Updated Every 6 months (March & September)
Ejournal Example


To find the statistics for a specific Journal:
First find the title in OU Ejournals and check which
providers it’s available through
Q:\ER-Management\Statistics\Journal Stats\AEA (American Economic Association)
Q:\ER-Management\Statistics\Journal Stats\EBSCOhost\Business Source Complete
Q:\ER-Management\Statistics\Journal Stats\Ingenta
Q:\ER-Management\Statistics\Journal Stats\JSTOR
Q:\ER-Management\Statistics\Journal Stats\Proquest
Ejournals – issues

Highwire titles – will only appear in our highwire account
if it has been registered by us –


if you find a title not linked to our highwire account we will do
our best to locate the stats and get it linked – can only be
done on a title by title basis
Platform Changes – if a title changes platform the stats do
not move with it. You will need to check the appropriate
historical stats for each platform – e.g APA PsycArticles
now on Ovid
