Guides to the Reports

If you're new to JUSP, have a look at our Getting Started Guide, which answers many of the questions that users have when setting up an account and beginning to run reports. You can find individual guides to the reports below, including how to run them, tips and screenshots.

Many JUSP reports can be exported for further analysis in Excel, and the charts and graphs can be saved as image files for use in your own documents etc.

Journal-level reports

  • JR1, JR1a and JR1 GOA reports

    The number of monthly requests for each title from a selected publisher over a selected period of time in the COUNTER JR1, JR1a or JR1 GOA (Gold Open Access) report format.

  • JR1 reports including gateways and host intermediaries

    The number of requests for each title from a selected publisher over a selected period of time, including accesses via gateways and host intermediaries (ingentaconnect (Publishing Technology), SwetsWise, EbscoHOST and Ebsco EJS).

  • JR1 reports excluding backfile usage and GOA

    The number of requests for each title from a selected publisher over a selected period of time both in total and with backfile use subtracted. It also shows you GOA (Gold Open Access) usage and usage via gateways and host intermediaries (ingentaconnect (Publishing Technology), SwetsWise, EbscoHOST and Ebsco EJS) to provide a complete picture of "current" usage.

  • Individual journal(s) search and usage

    Search across publishers for individual journals and see their usage across all available years, including accesses via gateways and host intermediaries (ingentaconnect (Publishing Technology), SwetsWise, EbscoHOST and Ebsco EJS) and via JSTOR if applicable. JR1a (backfile) and JR1 GOA (Gold Open Access) usage are also displayed.

  • JR5 reports

    The number of requests for each title and year of publication from a selected publisher over a selected period of time in the COUNTER JR5 report format.

  • JR2 reports

    The number of turnaways for each title and the reasons from a selected publisher over a selected period of time in the COUNTER JR2 report format.

  • JR2 reports including gateways and host intermediaries

    The number of turnaways for each title and the reasons from a selected publisher over a selected period of time, combined with JR2 data from gateways and intermediaries.

Summary reports

  • SCONUL returns

    The number of full-text article requests (COUNTER JR1 or equivalent) for the academic year 1 August-31 July.

    You can also view the slides and recordings from a related webinar that we have run: Using JUSP to help with the SCONUL return (1 · 2 · 3).

    NOTE: This webinar was recorded in 2013 and information contained therein may no longer be relevant for subsequent years.

  • Annual summary of publisher usage

    Identical to the SCONUL return, except that it provides usage (i.e. full-text article requests) for each publisher by calendar, rather than academic, year.

Usage profiling

  • Usage profiling reports

    Compare your own usage from a particular publisher by calendar or academic year with an average for all libraries for which we hold data, and that are in the same Jisc band and region, and in the groups (pre-1992, post-1992, RLUK, etc) to which your institution belongs.
