Altmetrics (or Alternative metrics) can be used to measure how scholarly articles are being shared, used and discussed on the Web and in social media.

Altmetrics complement traditional metrics such as 'times cited' counts displayed in databases like Web of Science and Scopus.

Altmetric Explorer for Institutions is a service that helps you monitor and report on your own research papers.

Via the Altmetric Explorer dashboard, you can also browse the data for all of Dundee's (and others') research papers, create and save reports, set-up email alerts for new activity, and export data to Excel for further analysis.

A guide on Altmetric at Dundee is also available.
