PIRUS2 (Publisher and Institutional Repository Usage Statistics) is a cooperative project involving publishers and repositories determined to develop standards and processes that will enable open usage statistics.
I will be presenting about SSRN’s view on article level metrics at the PIRUS2 seminar this week in London. I am also looking forward to learning about the projects current status thus far and next steps.
The project plan is available on their website, with more information here.
