Everything you need to know about getting started with badges. Find technical documentation, FAQs, watch video tutorials and download our promotional materials.
Altmetric.com embeds allow you to add new social metrics and data to your content with a minimum of fuss and technical effort – all you need to do is add two lines of code to your HTML. We host the altmetrics data that your readers will see, but give you control over their presentation.
The Altmetric API gives you programmatic access the data about research outputs and datasets collected by Altmetric.
Our mission is to track the conversations around research outputs online wherever they’re happening. To that end we’re constantly looking for new sources of data.
Implementing Altmetric badges?
Getting started with Altmetric embeddable badges is simple. Just add three lines of code to your website, tells us about your content and you’ll be up and running in no time. Altmetric badges customers can download our implementation documentation via our Support Centre, where you’ll find everything you need to get started embedding badges to your journal or institutional repository.
We provide dedicated customer support throughout your badges implementation.
