Data Planet has migrated all administrative portal access, including COUNTER R4 and COUNTER R5 usage statistics and reporting, to SecureCenter as of March 31, 2019. The direct URL for SecureCenter is https://securecenter.sagepub.com.
There will be a dual access period from March 31, 2019 through May 31, 2019 on both the Data Planet Administrative Platform (http://statisticaldatasets.data-planet.com/dpUserAdmin/) and SecureCenter. However, there are some important things to note:
After March 31, 2019, all changes will need to be made via SecureCenter and the Data Planet administrative accounts will become read-only. Account administrators will be able to view but not edit the following within the Data Planet Administrative Platform accounts:
On the Profile Tab:
On the Branding Tab:
On the Links Tab:
After May 31, 2019, all Data Planet administrative account information and usage statistics will only be available via SecureCenter, and the administrative accounts will no longer be accessible on the Data Plant platform.
