Little things about Scientitic Watch and Information Professionnals

App: Science articles tracked in social media

leave a comment »

Altmetric tracks tens of thousands of article mentions a month across Twitter, the scientific blogosphere and publishers including The Guardian, the NYT and New Scientist. It assigns scientific papers a score derived from this data. Around 10 – 15% of all new papers added to PubMed each month are covered (Altmetric covers articles not found in PubMed too).

Searching in the SciVerse Hub or on ScienceDirect while the app is active will rank articles by their Almetric score. Relevant information is also shown under the results themselves.

Tap through to see the actual tweets, snippets of blog posts, Mendeley & CiteULike reader counts and links to news sites
