Why can't I click on some news mentions?


In the United Kingdom, under The Copyright Designs & Patents Act 1988, headlines are copyrighted. To collect the data from UK newspapers Altmetric signed an agreement with the Newspaper Licensing Authority, which prevents us from including the links and headline to a news story unless the user also has a license from this same agency. As we can't verify that every person who views our Details Pages has this license we choose not to display the headline and link. 



How does Altmetric represent these news stories?

While we can't display the title or provide the link through, we can add a placeholder so users know when and where the output was mentioned.


How can I find one of these news stories?

To find the news story you can use a keyword search in your preferred search engine.

The ideal keyword search would be: Name of News Agency AND the snippet of text AND publication date.


Other reason for broken links on a Detail Page: ct.moreover links


Broken links and missing mentions titles on a Detail Page can also come from one of our news content providers. Before September 2020, these links (ct.moreover) would break after two years from the date the news article was posted and we couldn’t retrieve the content afterwards. This was due to how the data was stored. In September 2020, we have changed the way the data is stored and new links will remain active from this date.
