Breakdown of publisher and gateway usage by title and date range
What it tells you
These reports show you the number of requests for each title from a selected publisher over a selected date range including accesses via gateways and host intermediaries (ingentaconnect (Publishing Technology), SwetsWise, EbscoHOST and Ebsco EJS).
This enables you to choose any date range by month (academic year, calendar year or any other period that is useful to you).
You can view total usage either including backfiles (JR1), backfiles only (JR1a) or with backfiles excluded (JR1 minus JR1a).
How to run the report
- Log in to the portal and select Breakdown of publisher and gateway usage by title and date range
- Select publisher
- Select JR1 (all) or JR1a (archive only) or JR1 excluding JR1a
- Select date range by month and year
- Click Generate
How to interpret the data
This report allows you to see total usage over any selected time period. You can use it to view usage by academic year rather than calendar year, or to view cumulative usage over a longer time period.
When sorting by total, you can see what titles have had the highest use over the period selected, and (if you have marked up your core titles) how many of these were core or subscribed titles.
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 an alphabetical list, or by total to sort by titles with highest/lowest number of requests
- View a table showing the usage of the top five titles and compare this with average usage of all titles from that publisher during the time period selected
- 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
