What is Altmetric?

Altmetric LLP track a selection of online indicators (both scholarly and non-scholarly) to give a measurement of digital impact and reach. ‘Mentions’ that contain links to any version of the same paper are picked up, and collated. The result is the Altmetric score. The Altmetric score and ‘donut’ aim to help you easily identify how much and what type of attention an article has received, as shown on the example below.

You can now discover article-level metrics, including Altmetric and download information, for all ndt articles by clicking on ‘Information & metrics’ at the top of an article. Click on the Altmetric ‘donut’ or ‘see more details’ to view a detailed breakdown of where the article has been mentioned, helping you see the impact of your work.
