      Description

      Relates to DS-1206 (as in inspired by)

      AltMetrics is a service that gathers metrics from different services and offers an API to display these metrics back in your system.

      API docs are available here: http://api.altmetric.com/

      Note that whilst there are pricing plans, it does state that it is free for non-commercial use.

      Given that altmetrics are gaining more popularity, it might be a nice feature in DSpace to support this integration out of the box.

      To be addressed:

      • would a repository manager want to enable this for all items in the repository, only for certain ones that have a specific identifier (a DOI for example) or even would want to manually enabling or disabling this integration on a per item basis?
      • How will inclusion of these scripts affect performance (it should not delay pageloads)?
