Use the right data to evaluate your collection
To build a truly valuable collection that provides good return on investment, it’s crucial to be able to accurately evaluate the performance of individual journals, eBooks and any other content in your holdings. But without access to adequate usage statistics, it’s impossible to gauge whether content is performing as well as it should be.
That’s where SwetsWise can help. Our Selection Support service gives you the ability to evaluate your content usage and assess the impact factor and price-per-use of all your electronic holdings, quickly and efficiently. Using this data, you can be confident that you’re making the right decisions about whether content should be renewed or canceled.
Using SwetsWise Selection Support, you can rest assured that you’re making the right acquisition and purchasing decisions, as you can quickly identify which content gets used the most and which hardly gets used at all. A single clear overview gives you information on usage statistics, subscription details and price information, while intelligent, COUNTER-compliant reporting allows you to analyze electronic resources by package or individual title. Our advanced impact factor analysis tools, powered by Scimago, allow you to determine a title’s effectiveness over three years. This means you have solid data to back up the decisions you make over the future of a particular title in your collection.
