Plum Analytics | Advancing science by making scholarly research more assessable and accessible; Track and assess immediate impact of research

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

Plum Analytics was founded to help advance science by making scholarly research more assessable and accessible. Researchers and their associated labs, departments, and institutions will be able to track real-time impact, better promote their research, compare with peers, and connect with new research. Plum Analytics is building browsable and searchable directories of researchers organized both by topic and by the hierarchy at each institution. Underlying these directories will be a centralized scholarly reputation graph capturing the affiliations of researchers, the articles they publish, and their online impact. An institution or its departments can provide centralized access to research performed on its own campus. Researchers will be able to effortlessly highlight their research, make it openly available and discoverable online, and create new linkages to other similar research.

Plum Analytics will offer custom, metrics-based reports to support a wide variety of explorations, including quantifying how departments or labs measure up to their peers; discovering “rising stars” in different research areas for recruiting or co-research purposes; monitoring research marketing efforts; and providing quantifiable research outcomes in pursuit of grant funding.


Plum Analytics is a start-up metrics resource for measuring scholarly communication. Based in Philadelphia, PA and Seattle, WA. Plum Analytics was founded by Andrea Michalek (@amichalek) and Mike Buschman (@mikebuschman).
