The most widely used and leading quantitative measurement of impact on the scholarly communication is the use of citation data. In recent years, with the evolvement of institutional and thematic repositories and the advancement of OA practices, usage statistics is emerging as an additional indication of the assessment in the scholarly landscape.
OpenAIRE is harvesting usage data from repositories in an effort to produce metrics that will lead to an alternative way of assessing of FP7 OA publications. To ensure for maximum comparability of the statistics, the OpenAIRE Guidelines for Usage Statistics are in alignment with recent national initiatives in the UK (JISC PIRUS2), the Netherlands (SURF SURE) and Germany (OA-Statistik), all participating in the Knowledge Exchange Group on Usage statistics.
A brief introduction is presented in the following sections, but you can also download the OpenAIRE Guidelines for Usage Statistics v1.0 to find detailed information on how to participate in this effort.
