We’re excited to let you know that as of today, customers that have access to both the Altmetric Explorer and Dimensions (Plus or Analytics), will have access to a brand new feature in that allows them to import their search queries into the Altmetric Explorer, allowing for a more detailed attention analysis.

Using this search integration, users will be able to run a publications search query in Dimensions as usual, and then quickly and easily view the corresponding in-depth attention data directly in the Altmetric Explorer.

Supporting collaboration, in-depth analysis and so much more!

The integration with the Altmetric Explorer will take your searches to another level. You will be able to search across more than 100 million publications within the Dimensions platform and seamlessly analyze the online attention for your search query in the Altmetric Explorer without breaking your workflow.

Users can now further explore a researcher’s rich profile and all of their research output. This allows them to trace the impact of their work and identify influential (or even controversial) individuals in a field for recruitment, collaboration, or research purposes.

Advanced analytical capabilities in Dimensions Plus and Dimensions Analytics make it possible to compare and contrast data from research institutions around the world. Leveraging the integrated Altmetric attention analysis will support detailed benchmarking and mapping the competitive landscape.

More in-depth analysis can be done into the online attention for funded research by searching by funder group or funder country allowing users to strengthen funding applications Users working in the Biomedical sciences can utilize the additional research category filters including the classification systems used by the NIH in Dimensions.

How it works

In Dimensions Plus or Analytics, you’ll now be able to see a button that reads “See attention in Altmetric Explorer”. Run a publications search, ensuring that you only have 25,000 results or fewer. (Please note that if your publications search query has more than 25,000 results the button will be greyed out.)

Once you have filtered your results down to 25,000 or fewer, you’ll see the “See attention in Altmetric Explorer” button light up! Simply click the button to view your attention results in the Altmetric Explorer, where you can drill down into the individual mentions, see attention data over time, and more.
