PlumX 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.
PlumX profiles are beneficial for faculty, departments, and colleges. PlumX is the most comprehensive metrics product available today, compiling over 20 different data types from over 30 proprietary and open-access sources.
Any faculty member with a SelectedWorks Profile automatically receives a personal PlumX profile. PlumX profiles require no maintenance. All works included in SelectedWorks are automatically imported into your PlumX profile. Furthermore, all use and downloads, whether they originate in Digital Commons or SelectedWorks, contribute to your Author Dashboard and PlumX reports. PlumX further supports individual and unit-level reporting.
PlumX supports basic and detailed analytic reports for individual researchers, and departments and colleges. Basic reports are publicly available via the PlumX Profiles platform, while analytic reports are password-protected. For more information, see these pages:
