Altmetrics are non-traditional metrics that demonstrate online research impact. Explore things like how many times your work has downloaded, shared on social media, and discussed in the news. 

  • Altmetric Bookmarklet - Find article-level metrics for how many times online works have been viewed, downloaded, and shared on various social media sites. 
  • ImpactStory Profiles - Create an author profile that lists your works and provides detailed metrics on how your work is being read, downloaded, tweeted, bookmarked, and more.
