Data science company Altmetric has started tracking attention to books listed on Amazon, providing further insights into the online discussions and engagement relating to individual titles.
This new capability has already produced huge volumes of attention data - in just a few days Altmetric has found over 145,000 new mentions of 3,000 Amazon-listed books from Twitter, and over 20,000 mentions from other sources such as news, blogs and policy documents. Around 2 million mentions a year that relate directly to an Amazon record for a book are expected.
This data will be combined with attention data Altmetric is already tracking to the publisher and Google hosted version of books. Together the data is then disambiguated to provide a real-time report of engagement in the Altmetric details pages, accessible via the embeddable Badges and Explorer platform.
Amazon tracking is live now, and the attention data is accessible via Altmetric badges and Explorer platform.
