March 17, 2014

Version 4 of the COUNTER Code of Practice for e-Resources has been introduced as standard at De Gruyter Online. COUNTER4 is the current international standard for the creation and distribution of usage statistics for electronic resources such as eBooks, eJournals, and databases.

"With COUNTER4 our customers now have access to dynamic data reports that are indispensable for the analysis and planning of their budgets," says Ben Ashcroft, Director of Sales at De Gruyter.

COUNTER statistics are a joint initiative of libraries and publishers in order to assure consistent, credible, and comparable statistics on the usage of various electronic resources.
