[Eril-l] JoVE usage statistics collection what is your library doing?

Hi, Cheryl,

Thanks for the URL.  I was able to view our stats.

What isn’t clear to me is if the article views reflects the number of times a user actually watches a video, or simply the number of time a user landed on the page from which he can view the video.  We only subscribe to certain segments, and I’m seeing quite a few article views for some segments that we don’t subscribe to.  It doesn’t equate to the number of turnaways.  So it’s hard to tell what they are counting.

Maybe a good question for our customer rep.

Hi Cheryl,

Our usage stats are self service and IP-authenticated at https://www.jove.com/account/usage-statistics. No user name or password needed--I don't know if this option is available to all subscribers, but you might ask your rep.

If your library subscribes to JoVE streaming video collection how are you collecting the usage data?  It is my understanding that I can only collect this data by contacting the Jove rep for my library.  I have received an Excel sheet that shows each time someone accessed a film: the date of access, title, URL, etc.

I suppose I need to sort the Excel sheet to obtain the data: films viewed and number of times viewed.  Is this what you are doing?  Is there a way to get how many minutes a film was viewed?

We’re asking our rep but I thought I would ask here too.

Thank you,
