Website of the month for August - Altmetric Bookmarklet for Researchers

Not so much a website this month but a snazzy little plug in for researchers and librarians among other research professionals that helps you find out how much attention a research publication has received. This little tool has been around for quite a while and is simple to use and can provide insights on whether your paper has been mentioned in the media, in Wikipedia or across social media platforms like Twitter.

You can obtain the web extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari here 


More information from Altmetric.com

  • The Bookmarklet only works on PubMed, arXiv or pages containing a DOI with Google Scholar friendly citation metadata
  • Twitter mentions are only available for articles published since July 2011
  • You can request support for a particular journal by asking @altmetric for it on Twitter
  • Are you a publisher? Don’t use this bookmarklet! We have much better tools for you, just get in touch.
