Powerful measurements of attention that scholarly articles receive online
All the conversations in one place
Altmetric collects the relevant discussions around each article from Twitter, Facebook, science blogs, mainstream news outlets, YouTube and many more sources - then makes it all available to you in one place.
Scores for quick analysis and comparison
Each article is given a score that measures the quantity and quality of attention it has received. The score donut visualisation tells you at a glance how much attention has been paid to an article, as well as which sources the mentions have come from.

Powerful search & filtering
Browse all articles in the database, or filter by specific journals, publishers, or time last mentioned.
Interested in specific papers? Enter unique identifiers (including DOIs, PubMed IDs, arXiv IDs and Handles) to track them. Alternatively, search for articles using title and author keywords.
See the demographics for the social network users mentioning each paper. Was an article unusually popular in Spain? Amongst doctors? Science communicators? The Explorer can tell you.

Altmetrics at your fingertips
We're the largest publisher agnostic source of altmetrics data for scholarly articles, holding data on some 2.6 million unique papers - and we're still growing.
Search using boolean queries over titles in the Altmetric database.
Set up a filter and then save it as a report to be e-mailed to you on a daily or weekly basis. Set up activity reports for articles from your lab, institution or competitors, or in the subject areas that interest you.
Filter by attention type
See only papers that have been mentioned in the mainstream media, or that have Facebook wall posts - if we collect it, you can filter by it.
The Altmetric score & donut visualisation
The Altmetric score and donut give users a quick way to assess how much attention large sets of scholarly articles have received online. Tell at a glance which articles have been written about on science blogs, which were popular and which slipped by relatively unnoticed.
Feel free to experiment with queries - we've optimised the Explorer so that even the most complex set of filters returns results in seconds.
Happier working in Excel? You can export the data you find with the Explorer at any time.
View activity around specific articles
If you're interested in tracking specific articles, just paste in their DOIs, PubMed IDs, arXiv IDs, SSRN IDs, RePEc IDs, ADS IDs or Handles into the Explorer and we'll search for them directly.
Filter by publishers, journals and NLM journal categories
Restrict results to articles published in a particular set of journals or publisher. Alternatively use high level subject categories like neuroscience or cardiology to filter by topic.
