BioMed Central and Altmetrics


BioMed Central has added Altmetric scores to the articles tab on the institutional Membership page.

Altmetric tracks how many times the article is mentioned in social media sites, blogs and news sources to measure community interest in the publication. The Altmetric score increases as more people mention an article.  Altmetrics illustrate how the research is reviewed and disseminated across the web.
