IRUS-UK (Institutional Repository Usage Statistics UK) is a national aggregation service, which provides COUNTER-conformant usage statistics for all content downloaded from participating UK institutional repositories (IRs).
IRUS-UK is changing. From January 2022, new monthly data will only be added to the IRUS R5 service and this site will be archived. All data up to December 2021 will remain available on this site.

The service consolidates COUNTER-conformant statistics providing opportunities to demonstrate the value and impact of IRs:
