Scopus has introduced PlumX metrics into Scopus, following their recent takeover of the company. These come in 5 categories:
Usage – e.g. clicks, downloads, views, library holdings
Captures – indicating that someone wants to come back to the work – bookmarks, favourites, readers, watchers
Mentions – news articles or blog posts about research. Includes comments, reviews, blog posts, wikipedia links, news media.
Social media – tweets, likes, shares
