Altmetric Explorer for Institutions is a web-based platform that enables users to search, monitor, and measure conversations surrounding the research outputs of specific authors, research groups/departments, and institutions. This data can support institutions in a number of key areas, including:

Funding (applications and alumni donations)

Support your faculty in finding evidence of broader impact and engagement to demonstrate in funding applications, and showcase the attention research from your institution is generating to encourage further support.

Reputation management
Monitor early engagement and be aware of who is talking about your research today, and what they're saying. Engage where appropriate and ensure that the work of your institution and researchers is accurately reported and communicated.  

Access to the full Altmetric database means that you can compare the attention generated by your research to that from peer institutions or research groups, and work to improve your comparative reach or learn from their work.

Recruitment and review
Browse the database or import a list of outputs to review the attention and broader impact of a single author to help inform recruitment and tenure decisions. Help researchers with their promotion and tenure dossier by uncovering complementary altmetrics data.

Inform strategic planning
Understand who is talking about your research and where it is having most impact. Identify areas for improvement and support research portfolio strategy decisions. Using the mentions export, identify key thought-leaders in the community and engage with them. 

Drive marketing and communications activity
Determine what effect your outreach activities are having, and monitor interest and dissemination of your research in key markets around the world. Evaluate the efforts of other institutions and learn from their strategies.
