Revision as of 08:57, 13 April 2010
Types of Reports
The LexisNexis usage reporting and analysis system provides reports that comply with the Project Counter Code of Practice 3. As a database aggregator, rather than a journals service, LexisNexis is required by the COUNTER standard to provide the Database 3 (DB3) report, which shows searches and sessions by database, and the Consortium 2 report.
LexisNexis does not provide JR1 and Consortium 1 reports showing retrievals by publication title. These reports are not required and not appropriate for aggregator databases.
LexisNexis provides additional data on document retrievals by database, with detail LexisNexis "library" and "file" classification. These data are available through the Analytical Tools described below.
The new system supports the SUSHI standard for automated delivery of usage data. Users should log in to the usage reporting system and click on the "SUSHI" tab for step-by-step directions.
Usage reports will be provided for the following products, which have been developed for the U.S. higher education, secondary education, and public library markets.
- Government Periodicals Index
- Library Express
- State Capital
Usage reports will not available for LexisNexis Access to Primary Sources in U.S. History. Other products may be covered for customers outside the U.S.
Monthly data on searches and retrievals will be provided for January 2008 forward. Data on session counts were not captured by LexisNexis before January 2009 and so are not available for 2008.
In accordance with COUNTER guidelines, monthly data will uploaded to the system prior to end of the subsequent month. In practice, updates may occur as early as the 10th of the month.

In addition to providing COUNTER reports in the specified text file format, the LexisNexis usage reporting system includes powerful a powerful analytical interface that was first developed for the LexisNexis Statistical DataSets product. The analytical tools available in this interface allow users to analyze trends and select specific data elements for export.
