2 Goals of the program Serve our publishing clients Embed PlumX Widget in all Pitt journalsDemonstrate impact of published articlesServe the PKP communityDevelop OJS Plugin for PlumX that anyone can useEnable sharing of OJS article-level usage data with any external metrics/analytics system
3 Why altmetrics? More comprehensive Covers impact of online behavior Citations, usage, social mediaCovers impact of online behaviorBecause scholars increasingly work onlineMeasures impact immediatelyBecause citation counts take years to appear in literature
4 Why altmetrics matter to scholars Shows impact now, not years laterEspecially helps early-career researchersHelps researchers by generating interest fromPublishers and journal editorsGrant-funding agenciesResearch institutionsEmployers (current and future)Can also help withReputation promotion and management
5 Pitt and PlumX http://plu.mx/pitt Pitt was PlumX’s first partner, beginning in 2012Integrated with IR, 4 subject repositories and 37 OJS journalsTraditional citations & newer metricsScopus, CrossRef, PubMed Central, USPTOTwitter, FacebookWikipediaMendeleyGathers information in one place (profiles) while scattering and sharing it in other places (widgets)Does not include some proprietary data – some entities like Web of Science/Thomson-Reuters and Google Scholar have not shared this information with Plum as of yetWe were early partners with Plum Analytics (2012) in using their altmetrics service, PlumXWe are focusing at present on using the PlumX widget to share altmetrics and convey the impact of Open Access to our students and faculty
6 Here’s a small sampling of some of the metrics that PlumX employs—from 37 different sources as of May 2014Find out more here:

11 Sending the data ? API OJS ALM PlumX The core issue remains: how to get the metrics from OJS to Plum?Currently, journal managers need to export statistics by hand from OJS and upload them to a PlumX AWS instance.A preferable method would be to enable PlumX to harvest these statistics via an API in OJS.
