How often is your work mentioned in social media sites?

It’s worth taking a look at Altmetrics for Scopus. The database monitors a selection of social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google), blogs, mainstream media (e.g. NY Times, The Guardian, Die Zeit & Le Monde, Scientific American, New Scientist) and reference management programs for mentions of academic papers. The Altmetrics application is currently installed in Scopus but will only appear in the sidebar when there is data available for the article being viewed. You can usually find it underneath the “Related Documents” box on the right hand side of the screen.
