Article Level Metrics - Altmetrics
Traditional metric tools disregard new types of scholarly communication. Altmetrics can be used to measure how scholarly articles are being shared, used and discussed in the social media and publisher sites.
PlumX / University of Helsinki is an altmetric service that makes visible the impact of the publications by Helsinki University researchers. PlumX gathers the different kinds of metrics that are created when people interact with research output.
