Cape Coral, FL (January 16, 2014) — Unlimited Priorities LLC®, a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries, is coordinating the process of companies upgrading to COUNTER: Release 4 in conjunction with ISSEL, a British firm and vendor member of COUNTER. The COUNTER Code of Practice for e-Resources: Release 4 is an integrated Code of Practice covering journals, databases, books, reference works and multimedia content. Release 4 replaces both Release 3, incorporating journals and databases, and Release 1, encompassing books and reference works.
COUNTER provides an international extendible Code of Practice for e-Resources that allows the usage of online information products and services to be measured in a credible, consistent and compatible way using vendor-generated data. The changes in Release 4 are a combination of housekeeping to reflect the ongoing changing ways content is becoming available, synchronization of previous versions of the standard, and responses to user feedback reflecting an expanded familiarity working with COUNTER.
