HighWire Press Augments Articles With Altmetric Data

HighWire Press and Altmetric, a London-based startup focused on scholarly literature, signed an agreement to offer altmetrics integration for publications hosted on the HighWire Open Platform.

Per the agreement, Altmetric data—news, social media, bookmarking, peer-review forums, and so on—can be displayed beside research articles. These “mentions” are assigned a score based on the volume, source, and author of each mention. Individual mentions are clickable, allowing HighWire users to view sources such as news stories, tweets, and blog posts about the corresponding article.

“HighWire and Altmetric have simplified the implementation process to minimize cost barriers across the board,” according to Bill Matthews, HighWire’s director of business development. “This is a logical step in support of our publisher partners and their readers and authors.”

Publishers can contact their HighWire representative to request the addition of Altmetric’s data to their journal articles.
