    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The aim of this study is to analyse the occurrence of communication journals in the so-called Altmetrics (Facebook, Mendeley, Twitter, etc.) and how these indicators relate to each other and to the citations received. To this end, we study how the articles published by the Journal Citation Reports of the Web of Science for the 5-year period 2013&amp;ndash;2017 on the platform are registered. The results show how only a few platforms have significant coverage for studying the whole and in the case of Mendeley and Twit-ter, the coverage is superior to the citations offered by Web of Science. There is a proven relationship between citations and their occurrence on social media and platforms and their intensity varies by product. In general, the journals with the highest number of citations (Journal of Computer Mediated, Journal of Communication or New Media &amp;amp; Society) with few exceptions (Continuum) stand out.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
