Article level metrics on Science Direct
Altmetrics (i.e mentions on social media) are useful to monitor real-time engagement on recent articles which are not yet cited. They present a well-rounded view of how an article is being bookmarked, used, discussed, and shared. ScienceDirect has included ALMs and altmetrics on articles in a few popular journals since 2011, partnering with altmetrics provider Altmetric.com to capture online mentions in mainstream and social media, and other web-based communities. The number has expanded, and today 250 Elsevier journals now feature these metrics.
