Cobaltmetrics: Web-scale PID-centric Altmetrics

Boruta, Luc; McKay, Casey Scott; Vannson

There is a severe lack of diversity in altmetrics, so we are setting the new standard for citation tracking with Cobaltmetrics. The web is our corpus, and we index all URIs and typed identifiers as first-class citations.

We presented Cobaltmetrics for the very first time a year ago at PIDapalooza in Girona. A lot has changed since then in order to produce a corpus that is balanced and inclusive. We mine data in over 180 languages, we unroll short URLs and proxy URLs from over 175 services, and we crack open URLs to extract persistent identifiers.

We received invaluable feedback last year, and we think it's time for an update. We will present the most recent features and APIs, including our free altmetrics API, and our free URI transmutation API that converts between 50+ types of PIDs. We will also present upcoming features and promising collaborations like our partnership with the AI-powered summarizer Paper Digest.
