Beyond citations: Explore Next-generation Metrics to track your impact

Knowing who is talking about your research and what they’re saying is crucial in today’s digital work of every researcher. Ensuring your work is being accurately represented and interpreted, as well as reaching the right people at the right time, can contribute to your broader impact.

With next-generation metrics - also known as altmetrics - you can start to track this information as soon as your research is published – without having to wait for citations – and engage directly with your audience.

The Library now offers you access to worldwide altmetric data through Altmetric Explorer for Institutions. It enables you and your colleagues to browse and report on all of the attention data for research published by your faculty, and to benchmark this alongside other items in the Altmetric database.
