© SpringerBookmetrix is a unique platform that Springer Nature 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.

In its latest version, Bookmetrix is extending its scope by providing better insights into the reach and impact of Springer Nature’s various eBook collections. With these new, innovative features, Bookmetrix is adding value by offering detailed information for authors and readers as well as librarians.

Bookmetrix offers a comprehensive overview


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
