PCD Articles Now Feature Altmetric Scores
PCD is excited to announce that we are now using Altmetric for Publishers to measure article impact. This month, you'll see the Altmetric badge at the top of PCD articles. This tool tracks and scores a range of sources, including social media, media exposure, blogs, and author impact to capture and collate conversations surrounding scholarly content. The score is a calculated, weighted count of all of the attention an article has received based on volume, sources, and authors. By clicking on the article's Altmetric badge, you can visit the Altmetric Details Page for the article and see the mentions and references that have contributed to the score. We are excited to offer this new feature.
PCD GIS Snapshots
Did you know that PCD publishes regular GIS Snapshots? These map and text articles feature Geographic Information Systems (GIS) used to display national, state, or county data for important health topics related to chronic disease. PCD publishes these Snapshots on a regular basis, so check out the GIS section of our website often for new articles. Interested in submitting your map and research for consideration as a GIS Snapshot? Visit the For Authors section on our website for more information.
