In March 2009, the Public Library of Science (PLoS) became the first publisher to track transparent and comprehensive information about the usage and reach of published articles – rather than journals – so that the academic community has another avenue to help assess their value. These measures are called Article-Level Metrics (ALMs).
On July 12, Jennifer Lin, Product Manager at PLoS, gave an in-depth look at the the current status of Article Level Metrics, a discussion of what has been learned to date, and a glimpse into what is on the horizon for their further development and wider adoption.
