RE: Online journal statistics


The amount of usage information MCB University Press provides is
impressive. However, I did not see, in your message or on your Web page,
that your company provides statistics for the individual titles in your
package, other than for the "most requested journals." If I am missing
something, please let us know. One of the ICOLC guidelines is to provide
numbers for "Full text displayed broken down by title, ISSN with title
listed, or other title identifier as appropriate." One of the ways
libraries can use that specific information is to compare the use of the
print version and the electronic version. Aggregated numbers do not always
satisfy our needs.
