Usage Statistics Portal: Benchmarking functionality
76 Institutions responded to our short survey in reference to the usage statistics portal (benchmarking functionality). Our findings are as detailed below.
Question 1: How useful would it be for you to benchmark your institution’s journal usage for each individual NESLi2 publisher against that of other HE institutions?
38 / 76 (50%) = Very useful
36 / 76 (47.4%) = Somewhat useful
2 / 76 (2.6%) = Not useful
Question 5. Regarding questions 2-4 above, please indicate which would be your preferred choice regarding benchmarking (74 responses)
37 / 74 (50%) = Named institution
23 / 74 (31.1%) = Listed anonymously (same JISC band)
14 / 74 (18.9%) = Average usage by institutions in the same JISC Band
Questions 10: Regarding questions 7-9 above, which would be your preferred choice? (74 responses)
37 / 74 (50%) = Being anonymised within my JISC Band
30 / 74 (40.5%) = Other institutions being able to see my institution's name
7 / 74 (9.5%) = Being part of an average figure for the Band I am in
