EBSCO metrics in PlumX to be discontinued
We have been happy to have been able to continue to include EBSCO Usage and Capture data, as well as clinical citations from DynaMed Plus Topics, after our move from EBSCO to Elsevier in 2017. Effective November 1, 2020, PlumX Metrics will no longer be receiving usage and capture metrics from EBSCO and PlumX Metrics will no longer appear in EBSCOhost and EBSCO Discovery Service.
We will continue to keep the existing EBSCO metric counts in PlumX Metrics denoted as historical data, however, they will not be updated after November 1, 2020.
Usage and clinical citations are still important to PlumX Metrics and we do have other sources of these metrics and will continue to add new sources in each of the metric categories as we can.
We would like to thank EBSCO for providing us with these metrics the past 5 years and look forward to providing our users with new and additional sources of metrics enabling you to continue to view the impact of research.
