Altmetrics and citations

14 June 2016

The library search engine CataloguePlus is going to have two new buttons which enable you to see how much and what impact a certain book or article has had.

At the titles concerned, CataloguePlus shows the altmetrics icon. Click the icon to see how often the article has been mentioned on social media. You can see, for example, if an article has made it onto Twitter, Facebook, Mendeley and any blogs. This function has been added on 13 June.

From 19 June Citations shows which sources are cited by the article and Cited by tells you by which articles and books the article itself is cited. This way you can find more recent articles on the same subject. The citation information supplements that in the Web of Science and Scopus.
