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.
If you want to add your outputs to PlumX, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Altmetric Explorer / University of Helsinki gathers data related to journal articles from news stories, blog posts, tweets, and postings related to scholarly articles and creates a score based on information from each of the data sources examined.
Install the Altmetric Bookmarklet and get article level metrics of the papers you are reading.
Examples of databases and publishers who offer altmetric services:
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. Include your ORCID identifier in any research workflow to ensure you get credit for your work. In the future, using ORCID will reduce the need to enter data into a variety of different systems.
The University hopes that every researcher registers for an ORCID ID for publications, datasets, and other research outputs.
Create an ORCID id or add an existing ORCID id in your TUHAT profile, see instructions .
ORCID and other IDs
Always retain the final draft of your article. If necessary, request it to yourself from the corresponding author.
Our instructions take notice of alignments for Open Science defined by Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.
