MPSInsight - Delivering COUNTER Compliant Reports

With over hundred years of publishing experience, we understand your needs and challenges well. It is with this understanding that we offer MPSInsight that immensely simplifies publishers' compliance to the COUNTER Code of Practice.

MPSInsight automates the measure of online information, products and services in a credible, consistent and compatible manner. It uses the data generated at the client end, to create COUNTER compliant usage statistics reports. MPSInsight caters to the needs of publishers who have to provide usage statistics on online versions of journals, books and databases. This system also delivers reports at the consortia level which is also an integral part of COUNTER compliance.

Salient Features Brochure

  • SUSHI (Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) has been integrated into MPSInsight to facilitate automated retrieval of COUNTER usage statistics reports into the publisher's ERM systems. SUSHI is also a mandatory requirement for COUNTER Release 4 compliance.
  • All COUNTER compliant reports generated by MPSInsight are regularly provided to publishers' clients via an easy-to-use, customized interface. As mandated by COUNTER 4 Release, all COUNTER reports are presented in XML, besides the prescribed CSV reporting format.
  • Federated searches and automated searches are isolated from bonafide searches to reduce search session counts for the purpose of Database Report 1 and Database Report 3. Activity generated by internet robots and crawlers and LOCKSS and other caches are excluded from the COUNTER reports.
  • We understand that beyond COUNTER compliant reporting and usage statistics generation, there is always a vital need for additional reports which publishers can use to explore prospective areas of growth. These additional reports include the Sales Analysis reports and Data Analysis Tool that guide you to identify the up-selling opportunities.
