PlumX Profiles & Reports

‚ÄčPlumX ProfilePlumX Profiles gather traditional and non-traditional impact metrics for your work, including citations, usage, captures, and social media mentions. With this data, PlumX provides robust reports, which help you and your academic unit tell the story of your research. See below for more about PlumX profiles and reports, including our slideshow overview.

The accuracy and completeness of PlumX metrics is impacted by many factors, including data sources, data quality, and other technological constraints. The library provides these reports for informational purposes only to help identify trends in how your research is being accessed and used.
