As part of our commitment to making evidence-based decisions and developing data-driven strategies for our commercial licensing program, CRKN is pleased to announce that we have subscribed to Unsub (formerly Unpaywall Journals) on behalf of our members.
Unsub, developed by non-profit organization Our Research, combines journal-level open access data with citation patterns and COUNTER usage statistics into a comprehensive forecasting tool. Through individual institutional dashboards, CRKN members will be able to use Unsub to analyze collection usage and entitlements, inform decision-making and collections strategies, and enhance resource development. CRKN will also be using the tool at the national level to inform negotiation strategies.
CRKN looks forward to implementing Unsub in June and continuing to support our members in data gathering and usage analyses. For more information, please contact:
