EBSCO Acquires Plum Analytics

EBSCO Information Services acquired Plum Analytics, which is the first altmetrics provider to track all types of research output.

Plum Analytics will become a wholly owned subsidiary of EBSCO and retain its own products and management, including the PlumX metrics-gathering tool. Researchers, administrators, librarians, and funders can use PlumX to track the mentions, usage, social media, captures, and citations for a range of research artifacts, from articles and presentations to interviews and patents.

“Teaming up with the leading content and analysis provider for libraries and scholarly publishers in order to move to a new era of scholarly impact metrics helps us take the power of PlumX to the next level and realize new ways of assessing and analyzing research,” says Andrea Michalek, Plum Analytics’ co-founder. “With EBSCO’s deep content assets and usage data, this is a natural enhancement to the data that PlumX collects around research.”
