Our university search engine EDS allows to search across all the academic databases that are available at CZU. Thus saving time and effort in searching for information sources. However until now it was very limited in one way - showing the real impact of retrieved publications. That is now being changed with introduction of PlumX statistics in the EDS interface.
EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) users will be able to view the Plum Print to visualize the research impact of all items in the results list, including: articles, books chapters, e-books, and institutional repository materials. Powered by the PlumX Suite, the Plum Print visually changes depending on the altmetrics found in each of the five categories: Usage, Captures, Mentions, Social Media and citations, providing added research insight at the artifact level.
The Plum Print will appear in the EDS and EBSCOhost search results, giving researchers a highly visual way of evaluating resources, and the ability to quickly focus on information of interest to them. Hovering over the Plum Print highlights a brief visual breakdown of the altmetrics, and clicking on it brings users to the Plum Suite platform for more in-depth information.
What are you waiting for? Go out to EDS and see for yourself!
