Altmetric is the only alternative metrics provider to offer up-to-the minute citation counts from Web of Science
February 15, 2017, PHILADELPHIA – Clarivate Analytics Web of ScienceTMcitation data is now integrated with the Altmetric Explorer for Institutions (EFI) platform, enabling users to compare the academic and broader impacts of a single research output at the click of a button.
Users who hold a current license to EFI and Web of Science Web Services Lite, Web of Science Web Services Expanded or InCites can now see the Web of Science citation count and up to three citing articles in a new tab in Altmetric details pages accessed via EFI. The details pages provide a full record of all of the online attention Altmetric has tracked for a single research output.
“Listening to our customers is at the heart of everything we do, and enabling the integration between Altmetric and Web of Science had become a regular request,” said Joelle Masciulli, Director, Content Management Strategy at Clarivate Analytics. “Web of Science is committed to finding innovative ways to improve methods of research evaluation, and by bringing these two complementary metrics together; institutions can perform comprehensive analysis of both short- and long-term influence and impact of published research. We intend to look for additional ways to collaborate and partner with Altmetric in future releases of Web of Science.”
Speaking on the development, Altmetric’s Founder Euan Adie commented, “Ensuring that academics get credit for all of their work and are able to demonstrate this to funders and other stakeholders is a key benefit of altmetrics. We’re really pleased to be working with Clarivate to provide researchers with further evidence of their academic impact.”
Altmetric was founded in 2011 and has made it a mission to track and analyse the online activity around scholarly literature. It collates what people are saying about published research outputs in sources such as the mainstream media, policy documents, social networks, blogs and other scholarly and non-scholarly forums to provide a more robust picture of the influence and reach of scholarly work. Altmetric works with some of the biggest publishers, funders and institutions around the world to deliver this data in an accessible and reliable format.
