Ex Libris and Altmetric collaborate on way to engage with scholarly article feedback
Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, and Altmetric are integrating Altmetric badges with the Esploro research services solution, providing users with additional insight into the attention that each piece of research receives immediately following its publication.
The integration of Altmetric badges in Esploro will help researchers, institutions, and the public assess the broader engagement surrounding scholarly work directly within the institution’s researcher portal pages.
The badges are a valuable addition to the measurement of research dissemination and influence available through the Esploro research services solution.
Esploro enables universities to capture, manage, and expose their faculty’s output and data through a single platform, leveraging library expertise and technology.
The solution provides users with intelligent data capture, automated population of metadata, and an easy way to showcase researcher profiles.
Esploro users will be able to click on the Altmetric badges to see a complete record of the mentions for all research hosted on the platform, said Altmetric’s CEO, Kathy Christian.
These mentions provide an immediate indication of how the research is being received across news, policy outlets, blogs, and many other valuable scholarly and non-scholarly sources.
