Visitors to your page will be able to click on the donuts to access the full Altmetric Details Page, where they can explore all of the original online mentions and shares of your work.

Free and easy integration

Integrating the Altmetric badges is simple; just follow these steps and you’ll be up and running!

Please note that the free badges are only available to individual researchers for personal webpages – if you’re an organisation please get in touch to discuss options.

donutStep 2

Let us know you’ve done it! This way we can unlock the details pages to make sure everyone can see all of the original mentions of your work (otherwise they’ll just see the first 4 most recent ones from each source).
