Emerald announces COUNTER 3 compliance for journals and databases

Emerald announces COUNTER 3 compliance for journals and databases"Emerald Group Publishing Limited is now compliant with release 3 of the COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) code of practice. As a publisher of more than 200 scholarly journals and an extensive range of online collections in business management, library and information science, social sciences and engineering, these improvements made to reports on searches and session usage translate into more accurate usage statistics. COUNTER is an international initiative serving librarians, publishers and intermediaries for recording and reporting usage statistics in a consistent and compatible manner. Release 3 contributes to further reliability of COUNTER usage statistics and includes SUSHI (Standardised Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) to facilitate the collection and processing of large volume of data"
