    Highly-cited Taylor & Francis content from Africa


    Altmetric Attention Scores are tracked and collated mentions and shares of journal articles and other outputs across social media outlets, blogs, public policy documents, patent citations, post-publication peer-review forums, and online reference managers. 

    Altmetric LLP, collect article-level metrics and the online conversations around articles on Taylor & Francis Online, to give an indicator of digital impact and reach. “Mentions” that contain links to any version of the same article are picked up and collated. The result is the Altmetric Attention Score.

    Altmetrics demonstrate the impact of research beyond academia. These are some of the highest-scoring South African articles from the last few years.
