Institutional repository badges
Embeddable badges are free for individual academic institutions to display on content published by their faculty hosted on their institutional repository. They can be installed with just a few lines of code, and you can choose the style of badge you’d like to display. Users will be able to click on the badge to view the full details page for each research output.
Explorer for academic librarians
We offer free individual access to a basic version of the Altmetric Explorer for academic librarians based within universities; this is limited to two free accounts per university. This version of the Explorer can be used to browse and filter all of the research outputs in the Altmetric database but does not include any institutional views, functionality, or reporting. Please email us to request an account.
Badges for individual researchers
Individual researchers can embed our badges for free too! It’s a great way to add context to your personal website or online CV and can help demonstrate the reach of your work to visitors. Once embedded, you can click on the badge to view the full details page for each research output.
API for research
We provide free access to the Altmetric Details Page API for non-commercial, academic research purposes.
Researcher data access program
Researchers conducting non-commercial scientometric research can apply for free access to Altmetric data.
