What is Altmetric?

Altmetric is a system that tracks the attention research outputs such as scholarly articles and datasets receive online. Using data from social media outputs, traditional media, blogs and online reference managers, Altmetric creates an attention score influenced by the quantity of posts and the quality of the post’s source and displays the score in a donut.

Cambridge Core currently provides Altmetric scores for journal articles and books. If an Altmetric score is available it is displayed on the metrics tabs on the individual content pages.
