R5 reports, views and functionality in JUSP

What does JUSP collect?

JUSP currently gathers COUNTER Release 5:

  • Title Master Report (TR) which covers both journals and books at title level
  • Platform Master Report (PR) which gives a platform level summary for all content types
  • Database Master Report (DR) which covers databases

COUNTER Release 5 data start from January 2019, where available. For details of supplier status and data available for your institution please refer to the Portal home page.

These highly detailed master reports contain both usage and denial metrics, as well as details about the content such as years of publication (YOP) and under what conditions it was accessed.

How is the data presented in JUSP?

JUSP offers a growing range of reports and views derived from the master reports and merged with other information, such as core title status from Knowledge Base Plus (KB+), where appropriate.

All views or reports are displayed on screen and can be exported as CSV or TSV if you wish to carry out further analysis in other tools.
