Altmetrics

  • Cambridge Journals Online (CJO) now incorporates a new measure of article level metrics. Applied to a select number of Cambridge Journals, Altmetric provides detailed analyses of the online activity surrounding scholarly literature. By tracking social activity around an article, Altmetric gives readers an accurate picture of its online reach. With the sharing of articles between peers being increasingly seen as an indicator of an article’s impact and relevance, this means of quantifying social usage adds credibility to online readership. Altmetric collates an article’s popularity by monitoring the quality and quantity of attention that it receives online, and giving it a unique score.

  1. When can we see article-level metrics in the rest of your journals, particularly in the humanities? Please? (Disclosure: I am currently working as data researcher at Altmetric, but leaving this message as humanities scholar).
