Altmetric Enhances Wiley's Journal Program

Wiley agreed to add Altmetric’s article-level metrics data to its journals after a successful 6-month pilot conducted with Wiley Open Access titles. By the end of July, all Wiley journals will be available with data collected and analyzed by Altmetric: article mentions from social media, online reference managers, post-publication peer-review sites, public policy documents, and traditional media.

During the pilot, users accessed the new data to judge articles’ overall popularity, find researchers in their chosen fields, and understand articles’ influences on other research.

“We’ve seen some really positive feedback so far from users of the Wiley platform, and hope that with this further roll out of the Altmetric data the authors, readers and society partners of all of their journals can gain a better understanding of the wider impact and attention the published research is generating,” says Euan Adie, Altmetric’s founder.
