Join the Bookmetrix user experience test

May 8th, 2017

Bookmetrix brings together a collection of performance metrics, helping you to see how your books of interest are being discussed, cited, and used around the world.

Be the first to take a look at the new Bookmetrix and discuss your feedback directly with Dario, our senior UX designer.

We are looking for former or current PhD students and researchers, book authors and professors. The interview will only take about 20 minutes.

We would love to ‘meet’ you via Skype, phone, or Slack voice call. If you are interested, please contact Dario at

Welcome to Bookmetrix

© SpringerBookmetrix is a unique platform that Springer developed in partnership with Altmetric. It offers you a comprehensive overview of the reach, usage and readership of your book or chapter by providing various book-level and chapter-level metrics all in one place.

How will Bookmetrix help you?

Bookmetrix not only offers you a comprehensive overview of your book’s usage and reach, the data provided also helps you

  • answer questions from your funder about the broader impact of your work
  • demonstrate the engagement surrounding your research 
  • uncover new audiences and potential collaborators
  • find out where your work gets the most attention and from there establish ongoing relationships with key bloggers, policy makers or media outlets
  • benchmark your work against other titles or peers in your field

Explore the impact of your books!

What metrics will be available?

For every Springer, Palgrave Macmillan and Apress book and chapter you will be able to find the numbers of citations, downloads, book reviews, readers, and the number of online mentions in policy documents, news outlets, Wikipedia entries and social media networks. If available, these metrics are displayed on each book's home page on,, and on the individual book and chapter pages on SpringerLink. They are also available via Papers, a reference manager.
