APA PsycNet librarians and administrators can now access COUNTER 5 compliant usage statistics beginning with data for February 2019. You can view and download these COUNTER 5 reports on our new COUNTER 5 usage statistics portal.
What’s changed for
APA now provides usage data for the APA PsycNet platform
according to COUNTER 5’s defined reports. This new reporting framework provides
a variety of metrics measuring usage at the platform, database, and title or
item level (item level includes video title). The metrics include full-text
usage, searches, investigations, and requests.
For more information about report types and metrics, please
Friendly Guide to Release 5 for Librarians.
In addition to the COUNTER 5 defined reports, APA still
provides the DD1 report to show downloads for APA PsycExtra and APA PsycTests,
and video views for APA PsycTherapy.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Existing SUSHI credentials issued for
COUNTER 4 will not work with COUNTER 5; you must re-register for SUSHI
