The CSV Uploader Tool for Altmetric Explorer for Institutions (EFI) is used to quickly update the data implementation for your organization’s Explorer instance. You will be able to use the CSV Uploader Tool to update the department or group hierarchy, author names, and associated research outputs as often as you wish.


Before you begin


Before you begin, please ensure that you’ve prepared the following two files in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format:

  1. departments/groups file - you must upload this each time you perform a new data upload.

  2. full publications file containing all of the publications you wish to view in your Institutional view of the Explorer. This file should contain columns for each of the following:

    • Publication identifiers (one column per type of identifier)

    • Author names in Lastname, Firstname format (with multiple authors separated by semicolon)

    • Departments/groups as they appear in your departments/groups file, if applicable (with multiple departments separated by semicolon)


Uploading your data


To upload your data, you’ll need to be set as an administrator of your organization’s Altmetric Explorer instance. The CSV Uploader Tool can be found in the Administrator’s Panel, which is accessible via the wrench icon on the left-hand sidebar of the Explorer. Please check our article CSV Uploader Tool: Uploading the data for detailed instructions.
