Altmetric Badges added to Oxford University Press book content -

The distinctive Altmetric Badge is now being added to Oxford University Press (OUP) online book content. The badge updates in real-time to reflect the attention given to OUP books and book chapters from diverse sources including news media, social media, and policy documents.

The world’s largest university press, OUP already uses Altmetric Badges on all of its journals. For the first time, following the migration of its book content to the Oxford Academic digital publishing platform, it is adding Badges to its books.

Altmetric, part of Digital Science, is a technology company that tracks and analyses online activity around research. Featuring a variety of colors representing the different sources tracked, Altmetric Badges provide a unique and instantly recognizable at-a-glance summary of the attention for an individual OUP book. Every Altmetric Badge links through to an Altmetric details page, which provides a collated record of all of the original mentions of the book (and individual chapters where possible). In addition, the Altmetric Badge features the Altmetric Attention Score, a weighted count designed to help demonstrate the level of influence of a published work.
