This poster will contribute to the discussion on the relationship between views, citations, and Altmetric Attention score and to identify the metrics most likely to complement the traditional citations in scholarly publishing.
We used the materials published in a top multi-disciplinary journal for three years (7,566 records from 154 issues), 2018-2020 to analyze the characteristics of their citations, views and AAS of the articles, communications, additions/corrections, and perspectives.
We identified whether: (1) materials that are highly viewed will also have higher citations and higher AAS, (2) AAS correlates with more views and higher citations; (3) multi-authored works correlates with higher ASS , higher number of views or higher number of citations; and (4) whether articles with authors from more than one country correlate with higher number of views, higher citations and AAS.
This poster will highlight and illustrate the trends and correlations between the various metrics that were uncovered. It will also identify how the results of this study can inform collection decisions.
