Citation Counts Added to Synapse

Happy New Year to all of you! Kicking things off in 2020, we are happy to announce that we have integrated the Dimensions citation badge to all publications in Synapse.

Dimensions, a product of Digital Science, is a research database with over 100 million publications containing articles published in scholarly journals, books and book chapters, preprints, and conference proceedings.The badge will appear alongside the existing Altmetric donut, now giving you a variety of ways to view your publication impact.

All works in Synapse will include the badge if the work has a citation count that’s greater than zero. The badge is a dynamic link to the citation score in Dimensions and will fluctuate in real time as the citation count changes. Clicking on the colored wheel will take you to the source page where you can view more details, including the article’s citations.
