Are you ready for COUNTER COP5?

On March 5, STM ran a webinar on COUNTER COP Release 5. The recordings of the webinar can be found here.

This webinar guides you through the new metrics and reports in the COUNTER Code of Practice Release 5 (COP5) and provides examples of how usage is counted and reported. Presenters are Irene Barbers, librarian at the Juelich Research Centre (Germany) and Elena Zapryanova, Director Analytics at Elsevier. They cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to COUNTER COP5
  • How COUNTER COP5 will address future needs and stay relevant
  • New metric types and how they work
  • New reports and common use cases
  • Step-by-step instructions on each of the new reports

Don’t miss this if you are responsible for data analytics and platform development. Sales, business development and anyone who uses COUNTER Reports with library customers will also find this invaluable, especially the use cases.

Webinar on a Shared Infrastructure for Transparent and Transportable Peer Review (Blockchain)

The project for a Shared Infrastructure on Transparent and Transportable Peer Review was started in March 2018, by Digital Science, SpringerNature, Cambridge University Press and Taylor&Francis, supported by ORCID and Katalysis. The project aims to develop a shared infrastructure for sharing peer review information, enabled by blockchain technology, with the aim to make to process more transparent, transportable, recognizable, and trustworthy. It will soon open up for onboarding of new and interested publishers keen to test the concept.

The recordings of the webinar are available here.

The powerpoint slides are here.

COUNT ALL YOUR DOWNLOADS; Distributed Usage Logging webinar

The webinar was held on Tuesday 6 November and explains the recently launched project by Mendeley, Digital Science, Atypon, SpringerNature, ACS, Elsevier and supported by COUNTER and Crossref.

The aim of the DUL project is to track and report usage of content on other platforms than those of publishers, from collaboration and sharing platforms to reference managers and reading environments.

Think of ResearchGate, Academia.edu, ReadCube, EndNote, EBSCOhost, IngentaConnect, etc. This would be of great benefit to authors, librarians, funders, publishers, not to mention platform providers themselves.

Watch the video and learn about the first achievements of the project and next steps foreseen.

The powerpoint slides can be found here.
