Altmetric Badge Information

The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (AJTMH) now embeds Altmetric Badges to track the attention received by every article we publish. By tracking unique identifiers such as DOIs, Altmetric collects article-level metrics and online conversations around articles published by AJTMH. Online mentions that contain links to the abstract landing page are picked up and collated, and the result is the Altmetric Attention Score and Badge.

Visit to see the Altmetric Badge on the right side of each article's landing page.

When you click on the Altmetric Badge, you will be directed to the Altmetric Details Page, which will show you every mention for your article across Twitter, blogs, mass media outlets, Facebook, and more. View this video for an overview of the Altmetric Details Page.
