COUNTER release 5 details

Our COUNTER 5 data should be available one or a few days after the end of each month.

Available views and date ranges

The COUNTER 5 Title Master Report and Platform Master Report and their Standard Views are available for SpringerLink and activity from January 2019 onwards. The Database Master Report will be available in 2021. Our plan is to not supply Item Master Reports.

C5 data audited

The Title Master Report for journals and eBooks on and SpringerLink are COUNTER 5 compliant. We will be audited on Platform Master Reports later this year and will then reach full COUNTER release 5 compliance.



Supported file formats for reports

Springer Nature Librarian Portal: CSV and TSV; Via SUSHI: JSON.

Limits for number of months included in one report

There are no limitations. Be aware though, that the files can get quite big if you add several months.
