Basic search


When you login, you'll see the central search box at the top of the page. Here you can enter either a simple search term (such as a keyword, author name, department name, publication title, journal name, research output type, etc.) and dive into your altmetrics data right away.



Advanced search


Alternatively, choose Advanced Search to expand the menu and reveal additional search options, which provide ways to refine the search and     drill down into the most relevant results.




You can also enter multiple filters:

How to do it
Research outputs from your institution by author name or department/group name
Search for an author name or department/group name (from your institution) and see the corresponding research outputs and their Altmetric data.
Research outputs from entire Altmetric database
Search for any research output Altmetric has ever tracked across the full database.
Outputs by type (e.g., article, book, chapter, dataset, new story, or clinical trial study record)
Search or filter your results by research output type, e.g., to view attention data for the books with the most mentions.
Outputs that were mentioned in a fixed timeframe
Search for research outputs that were mentioned either anytime or within the past day, 3 days, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months. Available from the Advanced Search menu only.
 Outputs that were published in a fixed  timeframe Search for research outputs that were published in a specific time period. 
Keyword

Available from the Advanced Search menu only. However, you can
enter a single scholarly identifier into the main search box to perform a quicker, targeted search for 1 research output.




 DOI Prefix Search for a DOI prefix so you can see all the outputs from a particular publisher or journal.
 Handle Prefix Search for a Handle prefix so you can see all the outputs from a particular journal or institutional repository.
