EconStor Downloads now compliant with COUNTERPosted: August 26th, 2013 | Author: Olaf Siegert | Filed under: Newspost | Tags: COUNTER, Downloads, EconStor, Impact | Comments Off on EconStor Downloads now compliant with COUNTER
In order to make the EconStor download numbers more comparable with other services, we now use the internationally established COUNTER standard to measure our download usage.
Moreover we supply not only the download counts for individual papers, but also for whole collections or even for institutions. Plus we provide information about the breakdown of downloads by country.

Important aspect: We found, that the Download numbers measured via COUNTER only differ about 10-20% from our internal download numbers, that we have used before.
