  • RepNet = Infrastructure support for UK IRs funded by Jisc Very much a collaborative development – for &amp; of the community IRUS-UK – same team who brought you JUSP
  • Won’t go into PIRUS2 – was well publicised when completed - see project web site Google ‘PIRUS’, need to add ‘JISC’ otherwise connect to LA street gang information re Bloods (Found out before any merchandising got created – red t-shirt, etc Not resp for Street gang member/Usage Stats geek tragedy) Took the P out of PIRUS
  • National or other aggrgate level. Benchmarking/profiling/reporting Reduce duplicated effort!
  • Drew on expertise of involvement with: Knowledge Exchange w/shops &amp; recommendations Drew on: MESUR project especially (Bollen &amp; van de Sempel) Kept ‘pushed data’ to minimum Dspace patches – @Mire, Belgium (v1.8, v3.*) ePrints – Tim Brody, Soton (v 3.*) Fedora – coding required at each IR (Ben O’Steen wrote daemon &amp; implemented for Oxford University as part of PIRUS2)
  • Any questions?
  • Just send Id &amp; some other data agreed in KE guidelines. URL_VER: OpenURL standard URL_TIM: Timestamp REQ_ID: Client IP REQ_DAT: User Agent RFT_ARTNUM: Object Id SVC_FORMAT: MIME type RFR_ID: Source IR
  • 3 Step process – (‘Gimme 3 Steps’ Lynryd Skynryd) Step 3 can include finding DOI from CrossRef &amp; providing to IR to supplement metadata – loads of other possibilities for IR metadata enrichment. (In spirit of Hitchikers Guide to the Universe) There is a Step 4 every month to package-up into familiar time slice.
  • Aim to get 50 -75 Irs by end July 2013. COUNTER web site PIRUS CoP Release 1 For Recording &amp; Reporting Usage at Individual Article Level. Public comment from Feb-April 2013

    1. 1. Making scholarly statistics count in UK repositoriesRoss MacIntyre, Mimas, The University of Manchester UKSG Conference April 2013
    2. 2. IRUS-UK Funded by Jisc as part of UK RepositoryNet+ Led by Mimas Primary Project Team Members:  Mimas, The University of Manchester  Cranfield University  EvidenceBase, Birmingham City University IRUS-UK: Institutional Repository Usage Statistics - UK irus.mimas.ac.uk
    3. 3. IRUS-UK: history Emerged as an outcome of PIRUS2  Publisher and Institution Repository Usage Statistics project  http://www.cranfieldlibrary.cranfield.ac.uk/pirus2/  Aimed to develop a global standard to enable the recording, reporting and consolidation of online usage statistics for individual journal articles hosted by Institutional Repositories, Publishers and others  Proved it was *technically feasible*, but …  However, crisis/opportunity… we now knew it was possible to… irus.mimas.ac.uk
    4. 4. IRUS-UK: aim Enable UK IRs to share/expose usage statistics based on a global standard – COUNTER  Produced on the same basis as publishers  Filtered to remove robots and double clicks  Comparable  Reliable  Trustworthy  Authoritative irus.mimas.ac.uk
    5. 5. IRUS-UK: objectives Collect raw usage data from UK IRs for *all item types* within repositories  Downloads not record views  Not just articles Process those raw data into COUNTER-compliant statistics Return those statistics back to the originating repositories for their own use Give Jisc (and others) a nation-wide picture of the overall use of UK repositories  demonstrate their value and place in the dissemination of scholarly outputs Offer opportunities for benchmarking Act as an intermediary between UK repositories and other agencies  e.g. global central clearinghouse, national shared services, OpenAIRE irus.mimas.ac.uk
    6. 6. IRUS-UK: gathering data Considered 2 scenarios for gathering data  ‘Tracker’ code  a server-side ‘Google Analytics’ for item downloads  Pushes metadata to a third-party server as OpenURL Key/Value strings  OAI-PMH harvesting  Used to by third parties to ‘pull’ metadata from repositories  Repurposed to expose usage events as OpenURL Context Objects Opted for the Tracker  Just easier  Plugins/patches available for DSpace and Eprints  Implementation guidelines for Fedora irus.mimas.ac.uk
    7. 7. IRUS-UK: gathering data What does the tracker actually send to IRUS-UK when a download happens?  http://www.jusp.mimas.ac.uk/counter/?url_ver=Z39.88- 2004&url_tim=2012-07-05T22%3A59%3A59Z&req_id=urn %3Aip%3A86.15.47.114&req_dat=Mozilla%2F5.0+(iPhone %3B+U%3B+CPU+iPhone+OS+5_1_1+like+Mac+OS+X %3B+en-us)+AppleWebKit%2F534.46.0+(KHTML %2C+like+Gecko)+CriOS%2F19.0.1084.60+Mobile %2F9B208+Safari%2F7534.48.3&rft.artnum=oai %3Aeprints.hud.ac.uk%3A8795&svc_format=application %2Fpdf&rfr_id=eprints.hud.ac.uk irus.mimas.ac.uk
    8. 8. IRUS-UK: Tracker OpenURL strings The OpenURL key/value pairs  url_ver=Z39.88-2004  url_tim=2012-07-05T22%3A59%3A59Z  req_id=urn%3Aip%3A86.15.47.114  req_dat=Mozilla%2F5.0+(iPhone%3B+U %3B+CPU+iPhone+OS+5_1_1+like+Mac+OS+X%3B+en-us) +AppleWebKit%2F534.46.0+(KHTML%2C+like+Gecko)+CriOS %2F19.0.1084.60+Mobile%2F9B208+Safari%2F7534.48.3  rft.artnum=oai%3Aeprints.hud.ac.uk%3A8795  svc_format=application%2Fpdf  rfr_id=eprints.hud.ac.uk irus.mimas.ac.uk
    9. 9. IRUS-UK: processing data Logs are processed daily Step 1: Perl script parses the logs  Processes entries from recognised IRs  Sorts and filters entries following COUNTER rules  Consolidates daily accesses for each item  Outputs to intermediate file Step 2: Perl script parses intermediate file  Looks up each item in the IRUS DB  If item is unknown to the system add item with (most) metadata “unknown”  Updates DB with new statistics (for both ‘known’ & ‘known unknowns’) Step 3: Obtain “unknown” metadata  For the ‘known unknowns’ uses an OAI GetRecord to retrieve  Updates the metadata to DB irus.mimas.ac.uk
