What Can I Find on This LibGuide?

This LibGuide provides answers to common queries administrators may have while managing researcher profiles in PlumX.  This includes information on how to create a new h-index or simply update one, as well as information on the various ways PlumX gathers metrics from other sources like Scopus or ORCID.  It also provides a refresher on how to create a new researcher profile.

If you can't find the answer to your question on this page, or if you need any assistance, you can always reach out to Chelsea Gizzi and Rachel Pinotti at plum@mssm.edu.

What is Plum Analytics?

Plum Analytics is a research evaluation system licensed by the Levy Library to measure research impact and track research outputs across the Mount Sinai Health System.

Plum tracks both traditional metrics such as citations and h-index as well as altmetrics such as online usage, captures, article views and social media shares.

Most Mount Sinai faculty, departments, postdocs, residents, and students already have profiles set up on Plum.  To view your Plum profile click the link below and search for your name:

We Need You!

By keeping your PlumX group up to date, administrators maintain an accurate snapshot of research at both the individual and departmental/institute level.  Maintenance revolves around three concepts: Adding researchers to your group, removing no-longer-affiliated researchers, and updating the h-index from Scopus.com.
