Community call for Counter Release 5 compliance - Wed, 27 Nov 2019

SCONUL is supporting the call for library content providers to expedite the transition to Release 5 of the COUNTER Code of Practice. 


Release 5 reduces the complexity of the Code of Practice and offers a number of improvements:

  • greater consistency in report layout and between different formats
  • more consistency in vocabulary and terminology
  • fewer reports and metric types but greater flexibility to compare and combine
  • flexibility to access standard reports that meet common use cases in addition to reports that can be filtered to meet highly specific use cases.


The call is available here.
