The integration of Altmetric badges into the suite will help researchers and institutions assess the broader engagementsurrounding scholarly work.

Commenting on the integration, Nir Karmi, VP Sales and Business Development, said, “Scholarly institutions
today need to understand the societal impact of their work. The integration of Altmetric badges will help us
provide customers with a broader view of this wider engagement, beyond traditional citation metrics.”

see a complete record of the mentions for all research hosted on the platform. These mentions provide an
immediate indication of how the research is being received across news, policy outlets, blogs, and many
