Hi - 

Does Altmetric have a list of which news sources are considered "high profile" for inclusion in it's Highlights tab?  If so, we would love to have the list to share with our staff.

My second question is whether or not we can customize this list to suit our institution.

Thanks very much,


Hi Heidi!

This is a really good question. We don't currently have a publicly-available list of the news outlets used for generating the highlights, but I can say that they are all what would be considered "internationally-recognised" news sources such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, BBC, and so on.

At the moment, it isn't possible to customise the list of news outlets that would generate the highlights. However it's a great idea, and I will think about how we could add it to the platform in the future!

Best wishes,

Jean (Product Development Manager)
