Article-Level Metrics (At PLoS And Beyond)

"Article-Level Metrics at PLoS" takes the view that readers need some way to measure, or at least indicate, the 'worth' (or ‘impact’ etc) of a journal article.

With over a million articles published per year it’s impossible to read everything & so filtering tools are needed. Some journals have been experimenting with providing data on online usage, but PLoS is going further than this.

We are at the start of a program to provide citations, usage data, social bookmarking activity, media & blog coverage, commenting activity, 'star' ratings etc on all articles we publish.
