Announcing PIRUS 2: a project to develop practical standards for recording
and reporting online usage at the individual article level

PIRUS 2, supported by JISC, the United Kingdom Joint Information Systems
Committee, is a co-operative project involving repositories and publishers,
which will develop a set of standards, protocols and processes to enable
publishers, repositories and other organizations to generate and share
authoritative, trustworthy usage statistics for the individual articles and
other items that they host.

PIRUS 2 builds on the standards already established by COUNTER and on the
results of the original PIRUS (Publisher and Institutional Repository Usage
Statistics) project, which demonstrated that it is technically feasible to
create record and consolidate usage statistics for individual articles using
data from repositories and publishers, despite the diversity of
organizational and technical environments in which they operate.

Until now the most granular level at which COUNTER requires reporting of
usage is at the individual journal level. A number of recent developments
have, however, means that it would now be appropriate to give a higher
priority to developing a COUNTER standard for the recording, reporting and
consolidation of usage statistics at the individual article level.

PIRUS 2 will seek to meet the following main objectives:
. Develop a suite of free, open source programmes to support the generation
and sharing of COUNTER compliant usage data and statistics that can be
extended to cover any and all individual items in institutional and subject
repositories 
. Develop a prototype article level Publisher/Repository usage statistics
service 
. Define a core set of standard usage statistics reports that repositories
could/should produce for internal and external consumption 
. Assess the costs for repositories and publishers of generating the
required usage reports, as well as the costs of any central clearing
house/houses; investigate how these costs could be allocated between
stakeholders 

PIRUS 2 is lead by Mimas (The University of Manchester) and Cranfield
University; the other primary partners are COUNTER, Oxford University Press
and CrossRef?. Oxford University, Southampton University and other
Institutional Repositories will also participate in PIRUS 2, together with
publishers, subject repositories and related projects, in UK, EU and USA.
Work on PIRUS 2 commenced in October 2009 and the final report will be
published in December 2010.
