We are making a few changes to the usage statistics for Alexander Street. Most of the changes will be on the backend, however a noticeable change will be taking place -- the COUNTER 4 site will have a new user interface.
The reports offered will be the same: COUNTER 4 reports, as well as the custom Alexander Street reports. In addition, COUNTER 5 reports are now available.
Depending on how you’ve previously collected usage, your process may change: For admins who access the usage from the Admin Portal :
•Your process won't change. The link in the Admin Portal for COUNTER usage will update automatically when the change is complete. Please see below for user interface changes.For admins who access the usage using the admin.alexanderstreet.com site :
•The URL admin.alexanderstreet.com
will be redirecting users to the Admin Portal page, adminportal.alexanderstreet.com
