COUNTER release 5 details

Our COUNTER 5 data should be available one or a few days after the end of each month.

Which data is available? 

The COUNTER 5 Title Master Report and its Standard Views are available for SpringerLink and activity from January 2019 onwards. The Platform Master Report will be available later this year, with the Database Master Report following in 2021. Our plan is to not supply Item Master Reports.

Has your C5 data been audited? 

Yes, the Title Master Report for journals and eBooks on and SpringerLink are COUNTER 5 compliant. We will add, and be audited on, Platform Master Reports later this year and will then reach full COUNTER release 5 compliance.

Which file formats for reports will be supported? 

In the Springer Nature Librarian Portal: TSV; Via SUSHI: JSON.

Is there a limit on the number of months that can be included in one report? 

No. Be aware though, that the files can get quite big if you add several months.

Do you support custom filtering? 

Our plan is to make it possible to create custom views/reports of our Master Reports later this year. You will be able to filter based on attributes and for some attributes, you will be able to choose the level of detail your report should include.
