PlumX, provided by Plum Analytics in collaboration with EBSCO, is the first altmetrics tracking product that moves beyond article metrics and records all scientific output, regardless of its form.
Altmetrics data was originally proposed as an alternative to more traditional citation impact metrics in order to deliver a more complete picture of the research that is being produced and published. Compared to the different tracking products available today, PlumX stands out as an innovative tool, bringing a new era of scholarly data analysis.
Not all metrics are created equal. For that reason, PlumX collects information across five groups—usage, mentions, captures, social media and citations. The data goes beyond measuring the statistics for downloaded articles, but also reports on blog and media posts, datasets, letters, interviews, and webpages. PlumX collects information on clicks, likes, comments, views, downloads, citation indexes and much more.
The information gathered is presented in the form of a colorful widget embedded directly on the article page. The widget gives a broad overview of the calculated results in a simple and easy to understand format.
PlumX is a truly powerful tool for categorizing and augmenting traditional metrics for scientific journals and research. Exeley is honored to work with Plum Analytics to enhance the service offered to authors, editors, librarians, and scientists alike.
