Author affiliations data are supplied to Altmetric by Dimensions, and are matched to individual research outputs. Only affiliations with GRID IDs are supported -individual departments within organizations are generally not supported unless they have been assigned a distinct GRID ID. 


Is affiliation information available for other output types, such as datasets?


At this time, our affiliation information is available only for journal articles.


Quick search


In the Quick Search, you can type in the name of an institution or a GRID ID, and see a list of suggestions of matching subjects. 



Advanced search


In the Advanced Search, you can select one or more institutions or GRID IDs to create a more detailed search query. 



In the Research Outputs tab, you can also view the affiliations for individual research outputs in your search results - simply switch to the ‘List view’ of the Research Outputs tab to view these affiliations.



How do I view the top affiliations for my search?


The Highlights Tab will also show up to 3 institutional affiliations whose research outputs have the most mentions, for any given search query.


The top 3 affiliations are determined by identifying the organizations whose outputs hold the greatest share of attention within the given search query. The percentages are calculated by taking the total number of mentions associated with outputs from those institutions, and dividing by the total number of mentions in the search query.



How do I export affiliations data from the Explorer?


From the Research Outputs and Mentions tabs, you can also export the affiliations data using the CSV exports and the Explorer API
