PCD  Articles Now Feature Altmetric Scores

Announcement posted 03/31/16

Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD) is excited to announce that we are now using Altmetric for Publishers to measure article impact. This month, you’ll see the Altmetric badge at the top of PCD articles. This tool tracks and scores a range of sources, including social media, media exposure, blogs, and author impact to capture and collate conversations surrounding scholarly content. The score is a calculated, weighted count of all of the attention an article has received based on volume, sources, and authors. By clicking on the article’s Altmetric badge, you can visit the Altmetric Details Page for the article and see the mentions and references that have contributed to the score. We are excited to offer this new feature.
