See how your research is being received around the world

Altmetrics (or alternative metrics) are complementary metrics that work alongside traditional metrics to produce a comprehensive picture of how research is being received around the world.

Altmetric is a third party website that can help researchers to discover the reach and impact of their research through news outlets, policy documents, academic and social media attention. The University of Aberdeen has subscribed to Altmetric to allow our researchers to discover the online attention their research has received, to evidence potential impact and to provide additional evidence when applying for funding. You can log in to Altmetric at
