IRUS-UK: standardised institutional repository usage statisticsstandardisedIRUS-UK: standardised institutional repository usage statistics

ABSTRACT

IRUS-UK (Institutional Repository Usage Statistics UK) is a service provided by Jisc. It collects raw usage data from UK Institutional Repositories (IRs) and processes these data into COUNTER-compliant statistics. This provides repositories with comparable, authoritative, standards-based data. IRUS-UK enables UK IRs to share and expose statistics based on the COUNTER standard. It provides a nation-wide view of UK repository usage to all, it offers opportunities for benchmarking, provides aggregate data to organisations such as Jisc and research funders and enables a single service to act as an intermediary between UK repositories and other agencies/initiatives, such as OpenAIRE.
