Explorer for Publishers

Track, analyse and report on the online conversations surrounding your publications

Insights across the entire Altmetric database

The Altmetric Explorer for Publishers is an easy-to-use web-based platform that enables users to browse and report on all attention data for every piece of scholarly content Altmetric has found attention for.

A real-time measure of attention

All the conversations in one place

Altmetric collects the relevant discussions around each piece of published research from policy documents, mainstream news outlets, post-publication peer-review forums, social media and blogs, Wikipedia, and online reference managers like Mendeley – then makes it all available to you in one place.

Easily analyse and compare

Each article is given a score that provides an indicator of the quantity and reach 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.

Competitor insight at the click of a button

Curious to see how the attention surrounding your published research compares to that of your competitors? The Explorer includes access to the full Altmetric database – attention data for over 4 million research outputs to date – enabling you to compare and benchmark.

Get to know your audience

Instantly see the demographics for the social network users mentioning each piece of research. Was a study unusually popular in Spain? Amongst doctors? Science communicators? The Explorer can tell you.

“Altmetric Explorer has the potential to change the way we understand the impact that research has within academia and more importantly the wider impact that it has in society.”

— Ian Mulvany, Head of Technology, eLife
