Altmetric in Dental and Medical Problems

At Dental and Medical Problems, we have chosen to embed Altmetric Badges on our publications to help Authors track the attention their research is receiving. By tracking unique identifiers such as DOIs, Altmetric collects article-level metrics and online conversations around the articles published by Dent Med Probl. Online mentions that contain links to the abstract landing page are picked up and collated, and the result is the Altmetric Attention Score and Badge.

On our website, the Altmetric Badge is located at the top of the page for each article. When you click on the Altmetric Badge, you are directed to the Altmetric Details Page, which shows every mention for the article across mass media, social media, etc. For an overview of the Altmetric Details Page, click here.

Why use Altmetrics?

Altmetrics, or alternative metrics, enable you to notice the attention your article is receiving from non-traditional sources, including:

– mass media;

– social media;

– policy documents;

– patents;

– Wikipedia.

You can use altmetrics as complements to citation-based metrics, and explore the conversations around your work, helping you understand the impact it is having beyond the academic world.

Altmetrics can be useful to researchers who are keen on (1) building their online presence; (2) demonstrating the impact of their work; and (3) communicating the story of their research to grant review committees and panels. You can use Altmetric data to:

– identify the coverage and wider dissemination of your research to use as evidence in CVs or funding applications;

– view who is talking about your research, and identify potential new collaborators and build relationships with key influencers;

– monitor other research in your field and observe how it has been received by a broader
audience;

– manage your online reputation and actively engage with comments about your work.
