PlumX is a subscription-based platform for tracking research impact. We're pleased to provide a platform for developers to create their own metrics dashboards and embed PlumX metrics into their websites and applications.

The PlumX Open API

If you are hard-core, and want to jump into using our native API, it is documented in github. (See http://github.com/PlumAnalytics/plum-api).

In addition to retrieving article level metrics. you can also interact with both users and groups within PlumX.

To get started, you will need to get a developer key. Please request a key here.

PlumX Widgets

For the majority of our customers, embedding PlumX created data within your website or application through the use of widgets is likely going to be the most appropriate mechanism.

We have strived to make this process as fun and painless as possible. You can get sample code, and see the different options on our widget documentation page.

If you are new to PlumX and would like to embed article level widgets in your site or build user and or group profiles. Please contact us.
