Knowledge Unlatched presents
KU Open Analytics
Improving the Insights of your Usage Data
Why are we developing this?
Publishers wish to gain a better understanding regarding the use and impact of their Open Access (OA) book titles. Access to such data makes it possible to e.g. analyse the impact of OA marketing campaigns, to carry out gap analysis and to support editorial decision-making. Leveraging usage data can therefore function as a valuable component to publishers when shaping their OA strategy.
Knowledge Unlatched (KU) has experienced these challenges firsthand and has therefore developed the first version of the KU Analytics usage reporting tool. The tool currently integrates the usage reporting of the two leading hosting platforms for OA books, OAPEN and JSTOR. The usage data is aggregated for titles made available through KU and hosted on these platforms. KU will be expanding the number of platforms hosting KU books in order to connect even more usage data for OA eBooks. The outcome will be a powerful reporting tool which includes data from many leading OA eBook platforms.
