Altmetrics Integration

altmetricsAt KnowledgeArc we are introducing Altmetrics integration as part of our infrastructure.

Altmetrics provides an overview of your scholarly material’s online activity in a way that is quick and easy to disseminate. Using altmetrics to measure the impact adds value to your repository, whether that value is simply to help you determine whether users are engaging with your information, to whether it translates into funding opportunities for further project development.

If you are an existing KnowledgeArc customer or are looking to launch a high availability/highly scalable archive with Altmetrics integration, or if you are serious about your archive’s impact factor and need Altmetrics implemented on your own platform, get in contact and we will tailor a solution that works for you.

Get the bigger picture with KnowledgeArc Analytics

piwikGetting a picture of what people are viewing, downloading and searching for greatly improves your ability to tailor your archive to the needs of your users. However, current implementations are limited; you either have to incur (often steep) initial costs to license enhanced because out-of-the-box statistics are limited to raw or very basic output or you need to sign up for a cloud service such as Google Analytics, meaning you give up ownership of your data to another organization and are tied to their platform as well as their user agreement.

We aim to solve both these problems with KnowledgeArc Analytics, powered by the open source Piwik analytics system. Piwik provides comprehensive capture and graphing of your archive’s usage statistics but you don’t have to hand over your data to use it; you own the data your capture. What’s even better is that because Piwik is open source, you own the analytics application as well so you can deploy it wherever you like. Piwik also has a powerful programming interface so you can extend your analytics any way you wish.
