The Altmetric Details Page aggregates all of the online attention associated with a research output.
The Altmetric Details Page aggregates all of the online attention associated with a research output. This video takes you on a tour of the page:
The details page has a few components:
The Badge (donut)
On the left hand side the Altmetric donut contains the Altmetric Attention Score. The donut itself is made up of different colours, which represent different types of attention for the output. The more colours appear in the donut the more types of outputs have recorded attention about the output.
Mentioned by and Readers on
This list provides a snapshot of the current attention associated with the output. It shows the number of mentions or readers for every type of attention that has been received so far.
The Summary tab
The summary tab contains general information regarding the paper. The title, where it was published, its publication date, the identifier associated with the output (DOI, Pubmed ID, ISBN etc.), and the author(s)' name(s).
The summary tab also contains a visual representation of the location of Twitter users and Mendeley readers who are sharing the output. It also contains the "score in context" presents the relationship between this research output and ones written regarding the same topic, published by the same organisation, and/or published at the same time.
Attention specific tabs
Each type of attention has its own tab. The tab is created once attention has been seen. The mentions are sorted by time, with the most recent mention being at the top.
The details page is accessible by clicking on the badges associated with the paper. These badges will appear on the publisher's webpage or within the bookmarklet.
You can set up email alerts to tell you when an article has been mentioned by clicking on the "alert me when this output is mentioned" button on the details page. This allows users to track the ongoing attention associated with a research output. Whether it is that of a researcher, or simply an item of interest, anyone can stay up to date on any output tracked by Altmetric.
If an article hasn't been mentioned, it will still have a details page if it has mentions, such as Mendeley readers, that don't count towards the overall attention score a details page without additional tabs will be created.
If the article hasn't been mentioned at all, it will be represented by a different type of page. This page shows no summary tab, though it does still provide the option to be alerted to new mentions.
