See your article’s altmetrics in Cronfa

Swansea University’s public repository Cronfa has recently had a few enhancements. One of them is the addition of the Altmetric “donut” (or “bagel”, if you prefer). We have blogged about altmetrics before: the system counts mentions of a research paper across a wide range of media, social media, policy documents and more.

The donut will only appear on records that have some altmetric activity AND have a DOI or identifier that can be used to collate this activity (see “How it works” on the altmetric blog for more information). This is how it looks on Cronfa:

 

 

When you see the altmetric donut, the number in the middle is the altmetric “attention score” but you can click on it to explore the individual mentions that they have tracked. More information on what is counted on the Altmetric website.
