PlumX Metrics - Plum Analytics PlumX Metrics allows you to get more value from an institutional repository (IR) by embedding the altmetrics about your research directly into the IR. These altmetrics are about the different versions of the same article – not just the one in the IR, so your authors can see the impact and reach of their research in just one place. This makes your IR a more valuable place for research and encourages your authors to deposit their articles and other research. Embed metrics where you need them. The PlumX metrics come to you. The Plum Print shows all of the metrics about your research that you can easily embed anywhere.
