OpenAIRE's Usage Counts Service contributes towards impact evaluation of usage activity in Open Access Repositories.
Taking advantage of OpenAIRE's Graph service de-duplication mechanism, the service aggregates/merges usage statistics that come from different repositories and relate to the same object. Statistics are generated using the COUNTER Code of practice directives and reports can be collected from SUSHI-Lite compatible endpoints.
Managers of OpenAIRE compliant repositories can enable the service via the OpenAIRE Content Provider Dashboard. Statistics about the usage of a repository and its individual items are available in the relative detail page on the OpenAIRE Explore Portal and via the service API.
