Breakdown of publisher and gateway usage by title and year
What it tells you
These reports show you in separate columns for each year the number of requests for each title from a selected publisher including accesses via gateways and host intermediaries (ingentaconnect (Publishing Technology), SwetsWise, EbscoHOST and Ebsco EJS) for all years that JUSP holds data (generally from 2009).
You can view total usage either including backfiles (JR1), backfiles only (JR1a) or with backfiles excluded (JR1 minus JR1a).
This enables you to see how usage of a title has changed over time, marking when it entered or left a deal, or when you started or ceased a subscription.
How to run the report
- Log in to the portal and select Breakdown of publisher and gateway usage by title and year
- Select publisher
- Select JR1 (all) or JR1a (archive only) or JR1 excluding JR1a
- Click Generate
How to interpret the data
This report allows you to view usage of each title across a period of years. It provides an indication of when titles first became available within a deal, and any peaks or troughs in usage over time that may be explained by changes in research interests, course requirements etc.
When renewing individual subscriptions, deciding on renewal of deals or making any permitted changes to core titles within a deal, it is useful to be able to review use of titles over time rather than over a single year. This is particularly the case with deals offered over a three year period.
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.
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.
Top tips for using this report
- Sort by title for alphabetical list, or by total to sort by titles with highest/lowest number of requests in an individual year or overall
- View a table and graph showing the usage of the top five titles and compare this with average usage of all titles from that publisher
- View your subscribed or core titles as starred items if you have marked them up in the core titles area. Sort your report to see your subscribed or core titles first
- Identify DOAJ titles
- Click on individual journal titles to see usage of that title across all years for which data are available including accesses via gateways and host intermediaries and via JSTOR if applicable. JR1a (backfile) and JR1 GOA (Gold Open Access) usage are also displayed
