Will usage of ACS open access articles be included in my institution’s usage reports and will it impact our ACS subscription rates?

Usage of ACS open access articles will be included in COUNTER reporting and identified separately but will not be included in metrics used by ACS for pricing institutional subscriptions. ACS supports industry standard metrics, such as COUNTER, and has moved to the COUNTER 4 standard.  COUNTER 4 allows publishers and libraries to easily differentiate download requests made for articles published under open access models, such as ACS AuthorChoice, ACS Central Science, and ACS Editors’ Choice.
