We aim to track attention to all research that exists online, e.g. across all publisher platforms, institutional repositories or data repositories. Feel free to get in touch with us to check we are tracking a specific domain or platform. Altmetric needs the following to successfully track a research output:


Required metadata including persistent identifier


The research output's persistent identifier must be embedded in supported meta tags of the page in order for us to collect the required data that describes the output. 


Tell us about your domain


We need to be tracking the platform or domain. 


Mentioned in a source we track 


The research output must be mentioned (either via a URL or in the text) across our tracked attention sources. We strongly encourage you to link directly to scholarly outputs when mentioning research online. See our help page for more information on how we collect mentions
