The top ten highest scoring articles in PCCP according to Altmetrics

You can now find “Altmetric” data for articles in PCCP on our website, alongside information about citations to our articles.

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. The different colours in the Altmetric “donut” indicate the number of times the article has been mentioned on Twitter, Facebook, newspapers, blogs and other outlets.

So get involved: tweet about your latest article, share a link to an interesting Perspective on Facebook, and spread the word about some of the excellent science being published.

PCCP is on Twitter (@PCCP) and Facebook (, tweeting and posting about events you may find interesting as well as our latest hot articles and news. If you are using these social media sites too, please do follow/like us.
