ARTICLE-LEVEL METRICS NOW LIVE
You can now discover article-level metrics for all GJI articles, helping you see the impact of your work. Authors and readers can now view the number of downloads for each article, as well as the altmetric score on the GJIwebsite.
What is an Altmetric score?
Altmetric LLP measures the attention that an article has received by tracking ‘mentions’ from social media (e.g. Twitter), blogs, news outlets and the media, as well as online reference managers like Mendeley and CiteULike.
The score is a quantitative measure of these mentions based on three main factors:
These combined mentions and factors produce the Altmetric score.
How do I find out an article’s metrics?
When viewing an article on the GJI website click on ‘Article metrics’ to the right hand side of the article in the ‘Services’ column.
You can click on the Altmetric ‘donut’ or ‘see more details’ to view a detailed breakdown of where the article has been mentioned.
The ‘donut’ will not appear if an article has no Altmetric data.
Free online access to the top ten Altmetric scores of GJI articles
In celebration of the introduction of Altmetric on the GJI website, we have made the articles with the highest Altmetric scores in 2015* freely available online.

How can I boost my article’s Altmetric score and increase the number of downloads?
Sharing your article online helps to increase the impact of your article. Some suggestions for how to do this are below:
If you notice any mentions are missing for a paper email firstname.lastname@example.org with the relevant links.
You can also add an ‘Altmetric badge’ to any website, which allows readers to automatically link to the top three mentions of your article. To create a badge follow the instructions at: http://api.altmetric.com/embeds.html
