Publication stats for a multi-journal installation

Describe the problem you would like to solve
As a librarian providing support for several journals on a shared installation, I sometimes need to record information about our overall publishing output in a given period of time (usually annually). Currently I need to visit each journal individually to see its most recent publication date and record this information in a spreadsheet or list.

Describe the resolution you’d like
It would be great to be able to see / download a graph and / or table, similar to the individual journal stats available in the Editorial Activity settings, which would apply to the entire installation. This could show, for example, how many journals in the installation published a new issue or articles in a given time frame, and include the number of issues and articles published across the entire installation in a given time frame.

Who is asking for this feature?
Managers of shared installations who report on annual publishing stats for their unit.

I agree that this would be a fantastic feature for those of us in this situation. COUNTER 3 used to provide this, but we can get only individual journal stats since COUNTER 4 was implemented.
