Usage Report Information

Routledge Handbooks Online provides COUNTER-compliant usage reports for registered library account administrators. 

Benefits of usage reports:

  • Track usage at your institution over a monthly or annual basis
  • Find out how well books are being used in your institution
  • Identify key trends in user behaviour


COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) is an international initiative serving librarians, publishers, and intermediaries by setting standards that facilitate the recording and reporting of online usage statistics in a consistent, credible, and compatible way.

Usage reports available:

  • Book Report 2 (Number of Successful Chapter Requests by Month and Title)
  • Book Report 3 (Turnaways by Month and Title)
  • Book Report 4 (Turnaways by Month and Platform)
  • Platform Report 1 (Total Searches, Result clicks and Record Views

How do I run usage reports on my institution's account?

Register with us at [email protected]. Sign in to our subscriber services database with your username and password and go to My Account.

Click on Manage Usage Data where you will find all the options for downloading usage data for your institution.


KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) files for all books and standard collections can be downloaded here.  

KBART recommended practice has as a goal to improve data exchange between publishers and link resolver providers in order to improve the functionality of Open URL. Open URL is a technology implemented in library systems which allows the library to direct its users to the 'appropriate copy' of each document, i.e. a copy to which the library has a full text access.

Routledge Handbooks Online (RHO) Title Lists follow the KBART recommended practice and are updated every time a book is published on the website. The files are in Tab Delimited Text format as specified by KBART recommendations. Please note that if the tab delimited file is opened in Excel, some formatting may be modified by Excel. To reformat the dates in the Excel file: Format > Cells > Date > select format YYYY-MM-DD. 

Please contact us if you have any questions or want to inform us about an error in a list.
