As a market-leading digital publisher, Oxford University Press follow the recognized industry standard for recording usage: COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources). COUNTER has revised its Code of Practice with the latest release, COUNTER 4. We are currently working towards providing you with these enhanced reports. Given the diversity of our list and the COUNTER 4 release coinciding with additional work we are doing to enhance our usage statistics portal, the cut-over will be done in a phased approach with a majority of reports available during the first quarter of 2014. You will see updated information on the timeline the next time you log in to retrieve your reports.
