UKPMC now reports article-level citation impact

Alison Henning, New UKPMC Grant Reporting services – including citation data – now available, UKPMC Blog, May 21, 2009.  Excerpt:

Users of the UK PubMed Central Manuscript Submission System (UKMSS) are now able to use a new service - 'My UKPMC' - to report on the outcomes of any grant funded by any one of the UKPMC Funders' Group member organisations. Grantholders can export these grant reports not only in standard .csv and xml formats but also as publicly available web pages, which will update dynamically whenever a new publication is added to either PubMed or UK PubMed Central.

The service also provides grantholders with a “My Impact” report which shows the number of citations each paper has attracted. The citation count data – again updated dynamically so that it always shows the most up-to-date data – is provided by Thompson/Reuters Web of Knowledge (WoK). Users who have full access to the WoK service will be able to see details of the citing articles.

Over time we hope to provide additional metrics from other organisations, along with data such as number of downloads from the UKPMC repository.
