Altmetric now supports the ability to search by mention sources! 


How do I search for mentions from a specific source


You should start with a search. You can do a basic search or you can use the Advanced Search filters. Once you've completed your search, you should click on the Results Analysis button.



Navigate to the mentions tab, from there you can further refine your data. You can filter by mention type, publication day, and now by specific mention source. In the search bar, type in the name of the source and a drop down list will appear. You can then select the appropriate source. 




You can search by:

  • Twitter Handle
  • Google+ Account
  • Facebook Page
  • Blog 
  • News Source
  • Policy Source
  • And More!



Once you’ve filtered your results you can then export the mentions by click on the link that says “Export mentions data as a CSV spreadsheet”. The spreadsheet will begin downloading.



You can then open the spreadsheet and see the individual mentions including the link to the original mention.
