An up-to-date record of your book’s attention

From title mentions to specific chapters, track the success of your published work anywhere online

In whatever format your research is published, your audience is talking about it online. Altmetric for Books tracks this engagement as it happens, providing academics, publishers, institutions, businesses, and funders with valuable insights into how each book or chapter is received.

As long as your book has good metadata, is published by a whitelisted publisher domain, and has a unique identifier – such as an ISBN or DOI number – then Altmetric can track it. We can also use detailed meta tags to trace your book’s online visibility through search criteria, allowing us to position your work in relation to its field.
