High impact publications

How many people have been exposed to and engaged with a scientific publication can be measured by Altmetric scores. These scores include citations in public policy documents and on Wikipedia, discussions on blogs, mainstream media coverage, and mentions on social networks such as Twitter. Donuts provide detailed information on the impact of my publications with an Almetric score > 100  (which places them in the global top 5% of all papers scored by Altmetric).
