COUNTER for Librarians


Scholarly iQ has developed a tried and tested SUSHI web reporting service that is well used by librarians for harvesting usage reports from publishers. SiQ’s SUSHI Web Service provides a one-stop-shop, intuitive web portal for librarians to access COUNTER and non-COUNTER reports as well as harvest reports from multiple publishers in one place.

We provide full support for the SUSHI service with an authorization key which ensures secure access to permitted reports. Scholarly iQ has also already collaborated with leading third party software service companies to ensure interoperability and that libraries can harvest full benefits. Third party services already tested include Penn Libraries, EBSCO, ExLibris, Serials Solutions, Innovative Interfaces and Altova.

Our SUSHI Web Service now provides fast, robust and fully supported SUSHI web services for librarians to harvest their usage reports for improved and easier analysis.

SiQ makes signing up and implementation of the latest SUSHI protocols even easier with an automated process that allows librarians to begin harvesting usage data in a matter of minutes.

SiQ’s SUSHI Subscription Service provides the full suite of COUNTER compliant reports across a host of publishers, all in one place
