Launched in March 2002, COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of 
Networked E lectronic Resources) is an international initiative 
designed to serve librarians, publishers and intermediaries by 
facilitating the recording and exchange of online usage 

The COUNTER Code of Practice

COUNTER has been developed to provide a set of international, 
extendible Codes of Practice that allows the usage of online 
information products and services to be measured in a credible, 
consistent and compatible way using vendor-generated data. The 
COUNTER Codes of Practice for Journals and Databases specifies 
exact parameters including: the data to be measured, usage report 
content, format, frequency and methods of delivery. Release 2 of 
the COUNTER Code of Practice for Journals and Databases has been 
developed with input from vendors, librarians and intermediaries.

COUNTER brings new benefits to librarians, publishers and 
intermediaries: Librarians will be able to: compare usage 
statistics from different vendors; make better-informed 
purchasing decisions; plan infrastructure more effectively.

Publishers and intermediaries will be able to: provide data to 
customers in a format they want; compare the relative usage of 
different delivery channels; aggregate data for a customer that 
is using multiple delivery channels, learn more about genuine 
usage patterns. For more information please go to:
