Fw: Online journal statistics

You may be interested to know that in the UK a joint working party of
publishers and university representatives (mostly librarians) is about to
start work on usage statistics - what it is reasonable/meaningful to
collect, ensuring that we compare apples with apples, etc.   It will be
worth looking out for the outcome of their deliberations
