Metrics in PLOS ONE

Article Metrics

Open PLOS ONE and search an article or subject. In the results list, above each article is a Metrics button, click it to determine if the article has been viewed (both html views and downloads, in PLOS ONE and PubMedCentral), cited (in CrossRef, PubMedCentral, Scopus, or Web of Science), saved (in Mendeley, or CiteULike) or discussed (on Twitter, Facebook, blogs or in the comments on PLOS ONE itself). Click on any of these categories to see the metrics in more detail.
