EBLIP’s pages now include share buttons which allow authors and readers to distribute EBLIP content to Facebook, Twitter, and more than 300 other social networking services. The share buttons, which are part of a suite of tools available through the AddThis platform (, represent EBLIP’s first step towards utilizing alternative metrics (altmetrics) to measure the impact of the journal. The share buttons track the number of times that EBLIP’s items are tweeted and shared, and because these metrics are displayed at the bottom of each page, authors can see how frequently their articles have been shared with others and track the social impact of their work. Please use the new share buttons to share EBLIP’s content with your followers!
