Springer and Altmetric launch book impact platform

Bookmetrix will offer title and chapter level metrics.

The metrics collected will report on how often a book or book chapter is read, mentioned, shared or reviewed.

The data collected will be displayed on the book pages of Springer’s content platform SpringerLink and will be updated in real-time.  The metrics will cover citations, online mentions (including public policy documents, news outlets, blogs and a variety of social networks) and download figures.

Bookmetrix will also be available via the reference manager Papers.
