We are pleased to announce the inclusion of Altmetrics on 5 Royal Society of Chemistry journals.
With a constantly changing publishing landscape and changes to the way people use scientific literature, altmetrics is a measure that can monitor the level of conversation and interest in a particular piece of research at the article level. Thus altmetrics provides an additional modern metric for our authors to measure the impact of their work, rather than rely solely on citations and impact factor.
To view the altmetrics on articles within these journals, from the article landing page use the Metrics tab as pictured below.
A press release from Altmetrics is available on our website.
We are interested to hear your feedback on this new development and how you are utilising these new types of metrics. Please leave your comments below.
