A French translation of the latest version of the COUNTER code of practice is now available on the Couperin site:http://couperin.org/dossier-de-veille-thematiques/statistiques-dusage/counter#par1.3
The code of “practice” gives editors, database producers, aggregators, etc. precise specifications in order to produce usage data in a suitable format for their clients.
Media professionals can thus compare the usage statistics of various e-resource vendors.
The new feature in v4: “a unique and embedded code covering journals, databases and e-books as well as multimedia content.”
