Who is talking about your research?

plumx
PlumX metrics are now available in Himmelfarb Library‘s Research Commons, a repository of research output for GW’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and the School of Nursing.

PlumX provides non-traditional  metrics  like Altmetric (social media shares, mentions, etc.), as well as more traditional metrics including  citation indexes. PlumX provides information about what’s happening with research post-publication including usage, captures, mentions, social media, and citations.

To get an idea of what PlumX can tell you about an article, check out this article by GW faculty published last year and mouse over the PlumX Metrics button on the right side of the screen:
 
 
If you have questions regarding the Research Commons, please contact Meaghan Heselden (corbettm@email.gwu.edu).
