The top ten highest scoring articles in EES according to Altmetrics

You can now find “Altmetric” data for articles in Energy & Environmental Science 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. Check out the “Metrics” tab on each article page for more information.

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

Energy & Environmental Science is on Twitter (@EES_journal) 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.
