COUNTER Statistics: show only own stat to journal manager

Postby elbaek » Thu Mar 22, 2007 8:22 am

Hi

We have more journals running on the same installation of OJS at Ejournals@cbs. We are very pleased with the COUNTER statistics plugin that has been a great motivator for our journals to be able to se the usage of their journals.

But they are surprise to se that they can se other journals statistics. Benchmarking can be encouraging, but for some of our journals I am affraid it may have the opposit effect.

I would therefore suggest that each journal only has access to their own journal's views.

Best regards

Hi Mikael,

The Counter stats are designed with a multi-journal installation in mind, so counter reports would be of limited use for single journals only. However, Journal Managers shouldn't be able to view the report unless they are also Site Administrators; hopefully that addresses your concern about privacy of journal statistics.

The Counter statistics implementation is something that we're hoping to improve upon in later releases, as time allows, so hopefully we can provide more comprehensive information to individual Managers.

Thanks for the reply

Yes that's probably the case. Because I always log in as Site Administrator. Not so worried anymore :)

Although I get the statistics for all journals when I login as another journal manager. But I guess that the Site Administrator role overrules my limitations?

Hi Mikael,

Sorry, I misread the code -- actually, only Journal Manager status was required. However, I think it's more appropriate that only Site Administrators be given access, so I'll be changing this for the next release; if you want to patch your existing installation with this change, apply http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2709.
