What online usage statistics do you provide for institutions?

PDC provides usage data that meets the latest COUNTER Release 5 (R5) standards, including the R5 SUSHI standards. We have a statistics portal for librarians provided by Scholarly iQ. Detailed information is provided below:

Our statistics portal is designed to be user-friendly, intuitive, and COUNTER compliant. We understand that it can take time to become familiar with new reporting environments, so we provides a Help section in the top navigation bar along with a Help widget to guide you through reporting steps.

Our statistics portal was implemented at the end of 2018 and contains statistics from December 2018 onward.

To access your institution’s user statistics you need your library’s admin credentials. These may not be the same as those used previously – contact us at feedback [at] pdcnet.org as needed to confirm. Here is the access procedure:

Go to https://www.pdcnet.org/collection and under SUPPORT find Switch Account and log in with your admin ID.

Menu to switch accounts

Under YOUR ACCOUNT in the navigation bar find then the link to User Statistics. This will take you to user statistics portal.

You will first see the overview page of your user statistics. Current statistics for each month will be available in the portal on the 15th of the following month.
