NISO Solicits Comments on New SUSHI-Lite Technical Report

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) opened its draft technical report, “SUSHI-Lite: Deploying SUSHI as a Lightweight Protocol for Exchanging Usage via Web Services,” for public comment through Sept. 30, 2015. This supplement to the SUSHI (Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) standard proposes a way to exchange COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) statistics—such as usage for single articles or complete reports—using common approaches to web services.

“Librarians and publishers are well aware of how critical the SUSHI standard is for communicating measurement of electronic resources,” says Oliver Pesch, co-chair of the SUSHI-Lite Working Group. “However, since SUSHI was originally published by NISO in 2007, there have been numerous changes to the online environments in which we work, such as alternative metrics, the COUNTER Journal Usage Factor, and the rise of institutional repositories and the need to measure their use. There is a need for more lightweight technologies to allow smaller sets of usage to be exchanged in real-time, and the technologies and approaches described in the SUSHI-Lite technical report can support these newer requirements.”
