What is Altmetric for Institutions?

Altmetric for Institutions is a web-based platform that enables you to search, monitor and measure online conversations surrounding the research outputs of specific authors, research groups and departments at your institution.

Altmetric for York St John is now available. Altmetric data can support our institution in a number of key areas, including:

Funding (applications, reporting and alumni donations)

Support your faculty in finding evidence of broader impact and engagement for use in funding applications, and to showcase the attention research from your institution generates in order to encourage further support.

Reputation management

Monitor early engagement and be aware of who is talking about your research, and what they’re saying. Ensure that the work of your institution and your researchers is accurately reported and communicated.


Access to the full Altmetric database means that you can compare the attention your research receives to that from peer institutions or research centres, and work to improve your comparative reach.

Inform strategic planning

Understand who is talking about your research and where it is having most impact. Identify areas for improvement, collaboration and support research strategy decisions.

Drive marketing and communications activity

Determine what effect your outreach activities are having, and monitor interest and dissemination of your research in markets around the world.
