THIS IS A COMMUNITY INITIATIVEJISC Collections – Negotiate deals for the community – Provide legal expertiseBirmingham City University research group - Evidence Base – Liaison with institutions, requirements analysis, focus groups etc.Cranfield University – Specialist expertise in dealing with usage statisticsMimas are National Academic Data Centre based at The University of Manchester, we host, develop and support the service as part of our portfolio of services.
AIMS OF THE INITIATIVESingle point of access to usage data from multiple publishers – no need to visit separate publisher sites to download usage statisticsUsage comparison across publishers and years & establish value for moneyJISC Collections can view all consortial data.
All Publishers offering a consortium deal to UK community have been invited to participate.Note we have included some who don’t currently offer a consortium deal to UK but are keen, eg Emerald.Some others have signed.Some of the Publishers use the same technology provider, egHighwire or Atypon.NO LIMITVERY SIMPLE TO ADD MORE – BUT ….
We require them to sign a formal ‘Letter of Participation’, which can take a while to pass through their legal teams.& RESULT IN MODIFICATIONS----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------NEXT : WHAT DATA & WHAT WE SHOW TO USERBUT***HOW*** IS MOST IMPORTANT
“How do we collect data?” – AUTOMATICALLY WITH A MACHINE& USING NISO STANDARD Z39.93 AKA ‘SUSHI’***NO-ONE*** should be downloadingspreadsheets - it is a complete waste of librarians’ intellectual capabilities! (Ref NettieLegace’s article in Serials ReviewEach implementation can differ and we’ve had to develop SUSHI clients (FIRST IN WORLD TO HARVEST DATA FROM ELSEVIER & FROM SWETS – THINK OF ALL THOSE SPREADSHEETS!We’ve developed SUSHI server, so all data can be gathered from us using 1 SUSHI client. Ex Libris & Swets have successfully harvested usage statistics from JUSP.CODE IS OPEN SOURCE – OUR FOCUS BEING A SUSHI CLIENT BEING DISTRIBUTED VIA NISO (‘SUSHI STARTERS’) BUT HAVE MADE DB & PROCESSING CODE AVAILABLE & INSTALLED BY FRENCH COUPERIN CONSORTIUM.
Without COUNTER of course none of this would be possible because for the portal to succeed it must offer reliable data. All our reports are based on the main COUNTER reports the JR1 and the JR1a = ARCHIVE DATA, where available.
JOURNALSUMMARYEXPERIMENTAL – QUESTIONS OVER DATA QUALITY/INTEGRITYALSO – <TWITCH> BENCHMARKING </TWITCH> FOR JISC COLLECTIONS ONLY – maybe come back to?We also provide
JR1 HAS COUNT OF FULL-TEXT ARTICLE DOWNLOADS PER MONTH AT JOURNAL TITLE LEVELYou can see from this screen shot that:You can choose any time period – CALENDAR YEAR 2011You can sort by title or by total number of requests – ascending or descending orderYou can download the report as a csv file You can see a chart showing your top 5 titles with this publisher – EG OUP
Here you can see the usage reported by the publisher (in this case OUP) and the usage reported through PublishingTechnology, EbscoEJS and Swetwise, then a total which includes all usage. Often libraries are not sure when to add this usage, but where a library is making heavy use of one of these intermediaries it will make quite a difference to their total. AND CAN VARY EACH YEAR But they should not add usage when the site is acting as a ‘gateway’, as they are just redirecting to Publisher site.WE ENCODE THIS LOGIC AND PROVIDE FOR ALL INSTITUTIONS
Here we’re subtracting rather than adding, as the JR1 includes ALL usage, including backfiles. If you take away the JR1a figure from the JR1 you can see usage of the current YEAR separately. In this screenshot, its sorted by the JR1a figures, so you can see which archive figures have the heaviest use And there’s a pie chart which shows you at a glance how much usage is coming from the archive and how much from the current deal. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------THAT’S ALL JOURNAL-LEVELWE ALSO PROVIDE SUMMARY DATA – EG AT PUBLISHER-LEVEL
TRENDS - SUMMARY REPORT – Example of total usage for PublisherHere we’re looking at one publisher over a 3 year period so you can see from the graph how usage has gone up each year and which months show the heaviest use. We are now collecting data back to 2009, so for new libraries and publishers joining JUSP we shall have 2 full years plus ongoing current year to look at trends. This can all be done through SUSHI

• Accounting for nil usage• Does the JR1 report contain titles that are not available in the collection the library subscribes to?• Does the JR1 report contain titles that are no longer part of the current deal e.g. name changes, publisher changes?

"Evidence-based library decisions rely on the timely analysis of usagestatistics. JUSP has quickly matured into a highly valued service largely due tothe teams skill in solving problems and presenting complex data within aclear and well-structured user interface.”“The project has a real community feel to it, in that it actively responds touser input and I think it is a really good example of collaborative working -something we should be striving towards to avoid us needing to reinvent thewheel! I think the team has worked very well with libraries in seeking theirinput.”“We like the fact that with JUSP you know the data is proactively beingchecked and verified.”"The more publishers you can get on board the better! The JUSP portal isalready proving to be invaluable to us."
