Article level altmetric data are increasingly being recorded and displayed in peer reviewed journals and subject databases in the science and medicine fields. The range of article level data captured provides extensive details about the dissemination or impact of the scholar’s online published journal article. Here are examples of where you can find altmetric data.
PlumX Metrics in Scopus
The Scopus database uses PlumX metrics from Plum Analytics to provide altmetric information about published scholarly research articles. The five information categories captured in PlumX metrics are citations, captures, mentions, social media and usage.
The Public Library of Sciences (PLOS) journals - for example, PLOS One, PLOS Medicine, and PLOS GLOBAL Public Health - are open access journals. Altmetric data is available for every article published in any of the PLOS journals.
