Announcing Altmetric support at The Winnower

A

As part of my commitment to make The Winnower a (even more) better place to publish scientific results and discussions, I am proud to announce that each archived article at The Winnower now features Altmetric stats.
Josh posted a nice article explaining why Altmetric is an important feature to foster scientific discussion. I suggest you to read it. The most important point to be echoed here is that “Altmetrics emphasize individual articles and not where they are published.” They bring you a way to perceive and measure how your published article is discussed around the world. We welcome them on The Winnower.
Starting from today, each archived (i.e., with DOI) article will feature the well-known Altmetric badge, as soon as there is data available.
Already archived articles have the Altmetric badge, as well. However, it might take some time for the service to completely crawl the data, which goes back to January 1st, 2014.
