Altmetric for Publishers

Help your authors and editors see how their research is being shared and discussed online

Uncover conversations around your content

Altmetric data can provide valuable insight for publishers, editorial teams, authors and readers on how their published content is being used and shared around the world.


Our badges can be easily embedded into any platform to showcase the online activity relating to individual articles, and our flexible API can be used to display data across your site. The powerful Altmetric Explorer enables your teams to access our full database, where they can monitor and report on the dissemination and uptake of every publication.

“Part of our responsibility to the community includes discussing all kinds of ‘impact’ – and helping authors to extend the short- and long-term reach of their research.”

— Tracey DePellgerin, Genetics Society of America

Attract new submissions

Authors increasingly look for instant feedback on their research – adding Altmetric badges to your platform ensures this is provided in a reliable and transparent format, with no administrative burden.


“Altmetric is really important to us in terms of being able to tell stories about impact to be able to report back to our parent institution, and to the authors that publish with us.”

— Charles Watkinson, University of Michigan Press
