Altmetrics - Research Impact, Citation Analysis & Altmetrics


Resources & Altmetrics Tools

  • Altmetric Explorer
    created and maintain a cluster of servers that watch social media
    sites, newspapers and magazines for any mentions of scholarly articles.

    mid January 2012 we were tracking approximately three thousand unique
    papers a day. We have broad coverage and are getting better every month -
    we can track articles from hundreds of different publishers, preprint
    databases and institutional repositories. If somebody has recently
    tweeted, blogged or posted a public link to your paper then we quite
    possibly know about it.

    We clean up the data, disambiguate articles and give each one an Altmetric score..."
  • altmetrics
    one can read everything. We rely on filters to make sense of the
    scholarly literature, but the narrow, traditional filters are being
    swamped. However, the growth of new, online scholarly tools allows us to
    make new filters; these altmetrics reflect the broad, rapid impact of
    scholarship in this burgeoning ecosystem. We call for more tools and
    research based on altmetrics."
    "With altmetrics, we can
    crowdsource peer-review. Instead of waiting months for two opinions, an
    article’s impact might be assessed by thousands of conversations and
    bookmarks in a week."
  • Faculty1000
    F1000 core database is updated daily and includes over 100,000
    evaluations of the top published articles in biology and medicine.
    Articles are selected, scored, and evaluated by our Faculty of over
    10,000 expert scientists and clinical researchers who cover over 3,000
    peer-reviewed journals.
  • ImpactStory
    Tell the full story of your research impact.
    ImpactStory aggregates altmetrics: diverse impacts from your articles, datasets, blog posts, and more.
  • LinkedIn altmetrics group
    group is for hackers, scientists, librarians, policy makers and
    publishers interested in new ways to measure scholarly impact.
    altmetrics go beyond citation-based metrics and simple usage factors and
    look at the opportunities the Web offers to rethink the notion of
    "impact" and its measurement."
  • Mendeley altmetrics group
    aim of this group is to discuss new approaches to the assessment of
    scholarly impact based on new metrics. altmetrics go beyond traditional
    citation-based indicators as well as raw usage factors (such as
    downloads or click-through rates) in that they focus on readership,
    diffusion and reuse indicators that can be tracked via blogs, social
    media, peer production systems, collaborative annotation tools
    (including social bookmarking and reference management services)."
  • PaperCritic
    offers researchers a way of monitoring all types of feedback about
    their scientific work, as well as allows everyone to easily review the
    work of others, in a fully open and transparent environment.
  • PLoS Impact Explorer
    PLoS Impact Explorer allows you to browse the conversations collected
    by for papers published by the Public Library of Science
  • Plum Analytics
    "Plum is building the next generation of research metrics for scholarly research.

    Metrics are captured and correlated at the group / collection level (e.g., lab, department, museum, journal, etc.)

    We categorize metrics into 5 separate types: Usage, Captures, Mentions, Social Media, and Citations. Examples of each type are:
    *Usage - Downloads, views, book holdings, ILL, document delivery
    *Captures - Favorites, bookmarks, saves, readers, groups, watchers
    *Mentions - blog posts, news stories, Wikipedia articles, comments, reviews
    *Social media - Tweets, +1's, likes, shares, ratings
    *Citations - PubMed, Scopus, patents "
