Track your online research reach, engagement and influence

The University of Melbourne’s subscription to Altmetric Explorer for Institutions has recently been upgraded. Use this tool to analyse and report on the attention surrounding your research.

A single research output may live online in multiple websites and can be talked about across dozens of different platforms. Altmetric Explorer for Institutions helps track online attention to research from sources such as: news outlets; public policy documents; Scopus (citations); blogs; social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Sina Weibo and Pinterest; Wikipedia; online reference managers: Mendeley, CiteULike, and more.

Altmetric detail pages provide authors a collated record of the online mentions and shares of their research. Users can browse all of the original posts and click through to view them at the source. The data from Altmetric Explorer for Institutions can be filtered by author, department or output type (article, book, etc) and it’s possible to save searches, analyse results and export the data.
