FAU Libraries is now working with Plum Analytics to provide altmetrics for scholarly works by the FAU community. These metrics go beyond traditional citations and journal impact by measuring awareness and dissemination of research outputs in real time. See the Assessment of Research Impact guide for more information on altmetrics.
We are currently pilot testing PlumX. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Track Your Metrics with PlumX|
|Explore Your Metrics!|
PlumX covers many types of research output, including journal articles, books, chapters, presentations, videos, government documents, patents, and conference proceedings. See Coverage for more details.
You can view metrics from your researcher profile page. You can look at the totals for all of your items, or look at just one item type. You can even look at the metrics for just one article by clicking on its title on your profile.
|Category||Description||Metric Examples||Source Examples|
|Usage||A way to signal if anyone is reading the articles or otherwise using the research.||Clicks, downloads, views, library holdings, video plays||EBSCO, CABI, SSRN, PloS, RePEc, SciELO, SSRN|
|Indicates that someone wants to come back to the work.||Bookmarks, code forks, favorites, readers, watchers||Deicious, Slideshare, SoundCloud, Youtube, Github, Mendeley, Vimeo|
|Mentions||Measurement of activities such as news articles or blog posts about research.||Blog posts, comments, reviews, Wikipedia links, news media||Blog lists curated by PlumX, Reddit, News source lists curated by PlumX, Wikipedia, Amazon. See Mentions for links to curated lists|
|Social Media||Includes the tweets, Facebook likes, etc. that reference the research.||+1s, likes, shares, tweets||Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, GooglePlus, Figshare, Reddit.|
|Citations||This is a category contains both traditional citation indexes as well as citations that help indicate societal impact such as Clinical or Policy Citations.||Citation indexes, patent citations, clinical citations, policy citations.||CrossRef, PubMed Centeral, RePEc, Scopus, USPTO.|
|Creating and Editing a Profile|
FAU Libraries will use PlumX to track the usage of scholarly works created by the FAU community. Basic profiles have been created for most FAU researchers. These profiles have been created using public information from FAU faculty profiles and SCOPUS Researcher IDs. Profiles should be reviewed and updated by the researcher.
For a quick guide to the profile page please watch the University of Pittsburgh Libraries' PlumX Metrics Tour Video on Screencast.com. Please note that you will not be able to embed the widget during the pilot phase.
Register NOW and get your unique ORCID identifier in 30 seconds.
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributer ID) is a free and open registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. Unlike Google Scholar, Academia.edu, or ResearchGate, ORCID is NOT primarily a research profile system (although it can serve that purpose). In fact, having and using an ORCID iD will facilitate the maintenance of researcher profiles that you already have.
