Geographical distribution of views now available in journal ALMs

Copernicus Publications has extended the article level metrics (ALMs) by showing the geographical distribution of views. This information is available for articles published after 3 August 2016.

The metrics tab of each article shows how often the article was viewed, cited, saved, and discussed. Until now, the section "viewed" contained two graphs: the number of views per month as well as the cumulative number of views since publication. Now, a new section has been added showing the geographical distribution of these views.

In addition to the sheer numbers, a world map is shown where the respective countries are highlighted in different shades of grey. The geographical distribution of views is available for articles published after 3 August 2016. For interactive journals, the new section is shown for discussion papers published after 3 August 2016.
