NISO Publishes COUNTER-SUSHI Implementation Profile as a Recommended Practice

Provides a Baseline Implementation Structure for SUSHI Harvesting of Release 4 COUNTER Reports

Baltimore, MD – September 17, 2012 — The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) announces the publication of the COUNTER-SUSHI Implementation Profile (NISO RP-14-2012). The new Recommended Practice provides a practical implementation structure to be used in the creation of reports and services related to harvesting of COUNTER Release 4 reports using the NISO SUSHI Protocol. The Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting (SUSHI) Protocol was issued as a standard (ANSI/NISO Z39.93) in 2007 to simplify and automate the harvesting of COUNTER usage reports by libraries from the growing number of information providers they work with. COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) is an international initiative that published their first Code of Practice in 2003 and issued Release 4 of the COUNTER Code of Practice for e-Resources in April 2012.
