The Altmetric Details Page

A collated record of online attention

See all of the original shares and mentions for a research output

Accessible with one click via the Altmetric donut badges, the details page for each research output gives a full record of all of the original shares and mentions of an individual piece of scholarly content.


The summary tab provides demographics data for Twitter and Mendeley users of the research (where applicable) and the ‘score in context’ tab shows how the level of attention this research has received compares to other outputs published around the same time, or in the same journal.
