New resource – Altmetric Explorer

Altmetric captures the social attention received by research outputs

Users are required to create a log in with their university email address as the explorer function expects users to set up preferences.


Altmetrics are alternative metrics to traditional metrics like citations. They are an indicator of the online attention received by a research output (eg journal article, conference proceeding, book, dataset), and can be used to support traditional metrics to highlight interest in research that could not be measured in a citation count.

Altmetric is a commercial tool that tracks the attention received by outputs using unique IDs to look for mentions in non-academic sources:

  • local and international news sources
  • social media
  • patent applications
  • policy documents
  • blogs
  • Wikipedia
