Article level usage metrics are the number one statistic that researchers want to know after their citation counts.
- Is anyone reading our work?
- Did anyone watch our videos?
PlumX is unique in combining artifact-level Usage data with other artifact-level metrics. Below is a listing of the current Usage metrics that PlumX supports, and the providers of the data.
