Altmetric data provides valuable insight for publishers, editorial teams, authors and readers on how their published content is being used and shared around the world. Altmetrics supplement the Impact factor giving authors and readers a deeper understanding on how research is being used and its wider reach.
Some of the data collected includes:
- Download counts & page views
- Mentions in news reports
- Social media, blog (like this one)
- Policy documents
- Patent citations
The badges show real-time data and activity around the article and can show the success of outreach and promotional activity.
