Migration to Silverchair – information for library administrators

A wide range of enhancements to user experience, discoverability and admin functionality have resulted from the migration of our journals to the Silverchair publishing platform on Thursday 15 April 2021.

Our journals are now 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 now 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.
