Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science citation data is now integrated with the Altmetric Explorer for Institutions (EFI) platform, enabling users to compare the academic and broader impacts of a single research output at the click of a button.
Users who hold a current license to EFI and Web of Science Web Services Lite, Web of Science Web Services Expanded or InCites can now see the Web of Science citation count and up to three citing articles in a new tab in Altmetric details pages accessed via EFI. The details pages provide a full record of all of the online attention Altmetric has tracked for a single research output.
'Listening to our customers is at the heart of everything we do, and enabling the integration between Altmetric and Web of Science had become a regular request,' said Joelle Masciulli, director for content management strategy at Clarivate Analytics.
'Web of Science is committed to finding innovative ways to improve methods of research evaluation, and by bringing these two complementary metrics together; institutions can perform comprehensive analysis of both short- and long-term influence and impact of published research. We intend to look for additional ways to collaborate and partner with Altmetric in future releases of Web of Science.'
Altmetric’s founder Euan Adie added: 'Ensuring that academics get credit for all of their work and are able to demonstrate this to funders and other stakeholders is a key benefit of altmetrics. We’re really pleased to be working with Clarivate to provide researchers with further evidence of their academic impact.'
