Scholarly iQ today announced that IMAIOS’s January – March 2020 usage statistics for its human anatomy interactive atlas, e-Anatomy and its veterinary anatomy atlas, vet-Anatomy are now available using the latest COUNTER Release 5 (R5) standards at These standards are the latest version of the agreed international set of standards and protocols governing the recording and exchange of such online usage data, which are used to ensure trusted, transparent and independent reporting of publishers’ usage statistics to libraries.

The service will allow IMAIOS to attribute usage to institutions.
