The Library is working in partnership with Altmetric LLP to trial their new ‘Altmetric for Institutions’ application. We’re really excited to be one of the first Universities to have access to the platform which provides powerful insights into the online attention that our researchers’ outputs attract.

So far we’re getting lots of positive feedback which we’ll share when we write up our experiences of the trial later in the year.

In the meantime, if you’re a member of staff or a student at The University of Manchester and would like to take part in the trial please get in touch to find out how.



Welcome to the blog for Research Services at The University of Manchester Library. The services provided by us include:

  • Open Access at Manchester
  • Manchester eScholar (our Institutional Repository)
  • Business Data Service
  • Research Data Management
  • Citation Services
  • Scholarly Communications
  • Developing our Research Collections

These are areas that are changing fast, with new policy from funders and government driving that change, as well as changes in research itself. We aim to use this blog to give a flavour of our work and discuss issues of interest to people who work in research support, and researchers themselves, in Manchester and beyond. We will also show you the people behind those services.
