JR1 reports excluding backfile usage and GOA
What it tells you
This report shows you the number of requests for each title directly 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.
In this report, JUSP subtracts from the JR1 report backfile usage of each title as reported in the JR1a, and also adds in gateway and host intermediary usage, to save any further calculations to arrive at a figure for total usage of a current deal. The report also subtracts GOA usage from both "direct current" and "total current" usage from each title as reported in the JR1GOA.

How to interpret the data
This report enables you to see how much use is being made of your current deal or subscribed titles (including usage through gateways and intermediaries), as against use of any backfile or archive collections you have acquired separately.
The 'Direct JR1 minus JR1a and GOA' column shows the usage via the publisher, excluding backfiles and GOA (Gold Open Access) usage.
The 'total current' column shows all usage of the current deal, excluding backfiles and including (where applicable) intermediaries.
The 'total current - GOA' column shows all usage of the current deal, excluding backfiles and GOA (Gold Open Access) and including (where applicable) intermediaries.
The JR1/JR1a reports are likely to contain a number of titles that are not in the deal or collection you subscribe to for various reasons. You are therefore advised to treat the nil usage shown in these reports with some caution.
The JR1 report includes usage of archive or backfile collections which are also recorded in JR1a.
The JR1a report is for archive or backfile collections which are generally separately purchased. Not all publishers/aggregators supply JR1a reports. Some publishers have ceased to supply this report since Release 4 of the COUNTER Code of Practice for e-Resources made its production optional.
The JR1 GOA (Gold Open Access) report includes usage of Gold Open Access articles and become a required report with COUNTER Release 4.
If you have added details of your core (subscribed) titles, these will be highlighted by a star in the table. Titles included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) will also be highlighted with the DOAJ symbol.
Most summary reports in JUSP include intermediary figures as given in this report, either included in the totals or shown separately. This is always made clear in the notes for each report.
Please note that Ebsco EJS provided usage statistics up to July 2014; after that date usage of all titles accessed via Ebsco EJS comes directly from the publisher.
