WikiJournal of Medicine would like to make use of this property to track the citation metrics of its articles Diptanshu 💬 13:03, 20 July 2018 (UTC)


  Comment We already have DOI codes which are trackable. But a real-time summed up data cannot be procured in that form. We plan to get a gadget developed which will pull the data and display it on the article page based on the Altmetrics data. Diptanshu 💬 20:04, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support Definitely useful. Although it is possible to search AltMetric with DOIs, it's definitely easier via the AltMetric ID. Evolution and evolvability (talk) 06:16, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support I think it's interesting to see which pages cite the same articles. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 18:00, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
  Comment Academic journals state facts and need to provide citation for the facts they state. Naturally, they are likely to choose credible sources to cite what they choose to state. These cited references can be back-tracked and altmetric id or DOIs provide a way to back track them. You can surely get the list of articles that cite a particular article by using altmetric id. This link sums the citation metrics of the published articles. This link has various tabs classifying where the article has been cited/mentioned. Diptanshu 💬 12:06, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
