What's this page for?

It pulls together some of the online activity around this article. It is maintained by Altmetric. We collect relevant information from social media sites, blogs, newspapers, magazines and more.

Having one place where you can see all of the comments on or shares of an article makes it easier to see what others think of the work.

To help you put the data in context we've given the article an Altmetric score, which is our measure of the quality & quantity of online attention that it has received. The scoring algorithm is relatively straightforward and takes things like the relative reach of different data sources into account.

Note that the Altmetric score can't tell you anything about the quality of the article though reading through the different tabs might.

Can I be alerted if anybody mentions this paper?

Yes. If you'd like to be alerted when somebody shares or discusses this paper then you can sign up for email alerts.

You can do this for more than one paper. Alerts are sent out once a day if and only if there has been some activity around one of the papers you want to watch.

You've missed a news story, who can I speak to?

If you're waiting for a tweet or blog post to appear then give it a day: we try to pick up mentions as quickly as possible but it can take some time to process all of the information we collect, especially at peak times.

If more than a day has passed then please fill in this form - it will go to our support team who will take a look and update your article details page as soon as possible.
