We are excited to announce that Medicine® will be bringing authors article-level metrics with Altmetric badges. We know authors are curious about who is talking about their articles and where they are being shared online. Now with Altmetric badges, authors will be able to:
• Track online attention surrounding every article and help readers follow the stories surrounding the research
• Watch all the conversations at once from Twitter, Facebook, science blogs, mainstream news outlets and many more sources
Article level metrics are a new and interesting way to track a journals impact beyond the traditional methods. Altmetrics provide real-time feedback to authors and researchers about popular articles in their field.
Below is an example screenshot of how the Altmetric badge will appear on the Medicine® website, md-journal.com. Authors and readers can use the 'See more details' link to track the discussion around the published article.
