You can view the licence agreement (covering both single- and multi-site institutions) here.
We are committed to ensuring that our customers do not pay twice for access to Open Access content via article processing charges (APCs) and subscription fees.
Migration to Silverchair – information for library administrators
A wide range of enhancements to user experience, discoverability and admin functionality resulted from the migration of our journals to the Silverchair publishing platform in April 2021.
Our journals are fully cross-searchable and librarians can manage all their subscriptions, and download usage statistics, from a central admin dashboard.
The full range of COUNTER5 usage reports from this date onwards can be downloaded by library administrators who are logged into the Silverchair admin dashboard.
Institutions that have legacy COUNTER data have an “Archive Reports” tab in their SiteManager profiles. Navigating to this view gives administrators an option to “Download legacy COUNTER reports”. The following reports are available where applicable: COUNTER4 JR1 for 2019, 2020, and January – April 2021.
A “how-to” guide for library administrators is available here, and please contact us if you have any questions or need any help.
