COUNTER Reporting

SAGE Research Methods offers the following COUNTER Reports, which are all compliant with SUSHI harvesting:

  • Database Report 1 – by product in SAGE Research Methods
  • Database Report 2 – by product in SAGE Research Methods
  • Platform Report 1 – all SAGE Research Methods products
  • Multimedia Report 1 – for the SAGE Research Methods Video product as well as the videos in SAGE Research Methods

If you you are a customer, go to Secure Center to add and amend your details. If you experience any difficulty doing this, please contact us and we'll be happy to help.

    Please note: following the migration of SAGE Research Methods to our new platform there has been a change in the way that COUNTER usage is recorded and reported.

    On the old platform all usage of the original SAGE Research Methods product, whether of books, reference works or video, was captured as part of the Database 1 report. This report shows Total Searches, Result Clicks and Record Views by Month.

    With the migration of the platform, and the launch of SAGE Research Methods Video, this has changed. The SAGE Research Methods Video product is reported using Multimedia Report 1, per COUNTER guidelines.

    Usage of the around 50 videos in the original SAGE Research Methods product is now also recorded via Multimedia Report 1.

    In other words, usage for the original SAGE Research Method product is now split between Database Report 1 and Multimedia Report 1. For a complete picture of the usage of the original SAGE Research Methods product please combine both reports together.

    In Multimedia Report 1 usage of the videos on the original product will be labelled as “SAGE Research Methods” and usage of the videos in the new SAGE Research Methods Video collection will be labelled as “SAGE Research Methods Video”.
