A. Article-level metrics – Peter Binfield
Description: In an attempt to measure the article, as opposed to the journal it is published in, PLoS has recently implemented a suite of article-level metrics on all PLoS Articles. These metrics include online usage, citations, social bookmarks, comments, notes, ratings, and blog coverage. This presentation will go into the motivation for this program; provide information on how it has been implemented; and cover plans for future enhancements.
