Capture thousands of online conversations every day.
What’s your research footprint?

Thousands of conversations about scholarly content happen online every day. Altmetric tracks a range of sources to capture and collate this activity, helping you to monitor and report on the attention surrounding the work you care about.

A single research output may live online in multiple websites and can be talked about across dozens of different platforms. Altmetric work behind the scenes, collecting and collating all of this disparate information to provide you with a single visually engaging and informative view of the online activity surrounding your scholarly content.

“When I was still in the lab and writing code, the way to get credit for new software was to have a short descriptive article about it published in the annual web services or database issue of a journal with a decent impact factor. That’s flawed – there are better ways of telling the story of research outputs than just pointing to them and the journal they’re published in.”

– Euan Adie, Altmetric Founder
