Somehow I have missed the release of the API, thanks @varshilmehta! Is there a Paperbuzz plugin already for OJS?
@Josbell I am not 100% sure if it was Altmetrics, but the price you mention does sound familiar. Altmetrics is definitely something that needs more competition to bring the pricing down. Of course if Elsevier is just buying everything, it is just wishful thinking.
Acknowledging the concerns with Elsevier’s ownership and with pricing, to answer the original question, you can use the PlumX Artifact Widget plugin for OJS 2.4.x, if you are a subscriber of Plum Analytics.
The PlumX Metrics widget is FREE for any journal to use. A cost is only IF a publisher wishes to have a PlumX Dashboard to view and report on all of the metrics for a journal(s). For best results using the widget, you should make sure your journal DOIs are registered with CrossRef. If your journal has no DOIs and only URLs, and you wish to use the widget, please contact email@example.com.
Hi, @faulkners. Previously I understood that Plum was only tracking metrics artifacts which were held by its subscribers. (That is, the customer would supply a set of DOIs, etc. of interest, and Plum would harvest metrics.) Can you confirm that now Plum is tracking traditional and altmetrics for any known scholarly artifacts, regardless of an existing customer relationship?
Hello Clinton. We track metrics on over 70 million artifacts, well beyond our subscribers. We have many sources including CrossRef, PubMed, Scopus, Science Direct, SSRN, EBSCOhost and more. If your articles are not indexed in any of those sources, we will gladly ingest metadata and identifers via OAI-PMH (for free!).
