Altmetric is a free tool that tracks social media attention to research papers and other research outputs.
The University also subscribes to Altmetric for Institutions: this is a service that helps you monitor and report on your own research papers.
Via the Altmetric Explorer dashboard, you can also browse the data for all of Stirling's (and others') research papers, create and save reports, set-up email alerts for new activity, and export data to Excel for further analysis.
You can access Altmetric following a number of different routes:
