Cabells Altmetric Report

The Cabells Altmetric Report contains data on the frequency and location of a journal's article mentions in social media like Google, Twitter and Facebook. Click the Altmetric Report logo at the top right of the detail box to view.

Acceptance Rate

Each journal is ranked as to how difficult it is to have work published in it. The higher the ranking percentage, the greater the difficulty.
