Thanks for sharing the link to the presentation, I found it very helpful. One thing I’m a little concerned about, now I have a better grasp of what all the R5 reports do (late to the party, I know) is that they all seem to exclude GOA usage. That’s great for working out the cost per download - but I’d still like to know if OA content is being used. E.g., running the R4 JR1 reports with and without GOA usage recently has demonstrated that over 30% of the downloads from one publisher last year was for OA content. This is a stick I will use to attack them with come renewal season when they present me with the usual x% price increase; I can say “hang about, you should knock a third off because a third of our downloads from you has been for stuff that’s free.” It won’t work, but I’ll give it a go anyway…
Is there a R5 that will tell us GOA usage?

I haven’t read it in its entirety yet but this looks like it could help answer your question: https://www.projectcounter.org/using-release-5-usage-reports-for-strategic-decision-making/<https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.projectcounter.org%2Fusing-release-5-usage-reports-for-strategic-decision-making%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C71361af335864c2dd2a708d6ccf447a1%7Cd47b090e3f5a4ca084d09f89d269f175%7C0%7C0%7C636921746927574783&sdata=K9n5cbXeoa79ga5CHT9CulIROAjiauoCgrwo8svnf0A%3D&reserved=0>

Good afternoon all,
I am wondering what COUNTER R5 metric has been chosen as “the one” to compute cost per use? Then also, if “the one” is n/a, what’s the second option?
