SpringerLink Articles Add Altmetrics

Springer Science+Business Media now offers altmetrics information on all of its SpringerLink articles. Altmetric, a London-based article-level metrics startup focused on scholarly literature, provides the usage data from social media sites.

Springer’s goal is to add value to its online platform: “Whereas altmetrics were used in the past at Springer for annual journal reports and editorial board meetings, or to track a journal’s performance, now this information is being gathered and shared widely with authors, SpringerLink users and the general public as well,” says Martijn Roelandse, senior editor at Springer.

On the SpringerLink platform, researchers can view altmetrics on the abstract page of every article without having full-text access to SpringerLink. A “shares” link on the abstract page sends users to Altmetric’s website, where they can enter into discussions about each article.
