Usage Statistics Issues

Issues affecting multiple resources:

Site Security Changes

As a result of planned development work to improve the security on journals sites, some customers were unable to access the pages from 16/02/2016 – 19/02/2016.
If you were affected by this issue, you may see a drop in your usage statistics for the affected period.

Ad Blockers
5th November 2015: Some customers may not be seeing all usage statistics returned for their known product use. It has become clear that the page tagging method which allows OUP to track usage is blocked by several common ad blockers used by customers. Customers using these exclusion lists will therefore not show up in our usage statistics.
We are currently reviewing how this could be resolved. In the meantime, customers should be able to remove the OUP Netinsights Page tagging from their Ad blocking software lists and this should resolve the issue.

Free Trials
Some customers who have had a free trial are not seeing any usage reported for some or all of the trial period. This issue is only affecting trials, in particular where the customer doesn’t have a current active account. Whilst we are working with our suppliers to resolve this issue,  free trial usage statistics may be requested from our customer services team.

Turnaway data is unavailable. From July 2014 We have also identified an issue with how section requests were reported in the COUNTER 1 reporting process, with some freely accessible pages being incorrectly included in results. Statistics prior to July 2014 will not be adjusted; however, as a result of corrections being applied to the reporting process as part of the migration to COUNTER 4, you may find a reduction in your usage statistics from July 2014.

Oxford Dictionaries
The Oxford Dictionaries website contains both ‘free’ and ‘premium’ content.

In customer COUNTER reports, usage of premium pages of non-English language dictionary content is reported in separate rows from February 2015 onwards. For example, the ‘Product’ value ‘ODO Russian’ indicates usage of premium Russian language content on the Oxford Dictionaries site. Usage of free non-English language content is included under the general ‘Oxford Dictionaries’ row in COUNTER reports. In both cases, the ‘Platform’ value is Oxford Dictionaries.

As a result of the structure of Oxford Dictionaries and consequent reporting model, your usage statistics for non-English language products may be lower than expected.
Jan 2014-June 2014 and July 2015 – present Due to the relaunch of Oxford Dictionaries Pro as Oxford Dictionaries and its platform, there are periods where unfortunately data is not able to be provided:

1. January – May 2014 usage: Following the migration of the site and the transition to the new usage statistics reporting system, usage is unfortunately unavailable for the period 20th January – 15th May and no data will be reported for this period. Usage reported for January will only reflect the period between the 1st and 19th January, prior to the migration of the site.

2. May-June 2014 usage: Section Requests for Oxford Dictionaries in the BR2 report were not included in the release of usage data on the 15th August. This data has now been posted, however due to issue outlined above May data will only reflect the period from the 16th May.

3. Turnaway (concurent and access denials) data for Oxford Dictionaries that was not available in the BR4 for the period of July 2014 – 16th January 2015 has now been added and corrected.

Social Explorer
The central problem of being unable to apply standards to a uniquely structured product is that we cannot provide the same level of quality assurance for the data. As a result it is currently impossible for us to apply the COUNTER standards to Social Explorer. To overcome this difficulty, we currently use ICOLC to obtain the usage reports for the product. These ICOLC standards allow different measurements which give accurate usage analysis for non-standard products. It is, however, important for customers to take into consideration the limited reporting standards applied to Social Explorer usage reports.
