Article Match Retrieval Usage - Summary Report

This report allows you to monitor your usage of inbound links service calls made to us and the data that we returned to you for the time period selected from the Article Match Retrieval Usage page

Inbound links are service calls made by publishers, partners, and institutions. A service call is a query from your Web site to Web of Science full records, citing article counts, times cited counts, and more. Each service call is treated as an event. Each time the service is called, we count the call as one event. An event can handle up to 50 requests. Requests are unique citations within an event and are counted separately from events.

Be aware that a count of zero ( 0 ) means data entitlement but no usage data is available for that month. An empty field means your institution is not entitled to data for that month.

Inbound Links

Total Calls: Each service call is counted as one event. The system displays the total number of times the service was called for a particular month.

Total Items Requested: Displays the total number of matched and unmatched items that are requested by the publisher, partner, or institution for a particular event. Each unique citation counts as one request. Because each service call can contain more than one item,each item in the request is individually counted. The total count matches the total number of citations (requests) that we receive from a publisher, partner, or institution.

Items Matched: Displays the total number of items that are matched. We run each request that we receive against our database and against your subscription entitlements. Each item for which a match is found and data is returned is counted as one match.

Items Not Matched: Displays the total number of items that are unmatched. Each item for which no match is found and no data is returned to you is counted as one not match.

Items Returned

For each item, successfully matched requests are counted individually and are returned to the publisher, partner, or institution.
