Fig. 4: Citations and online attention metrics when content is restricted to NPP front-half materials (editorials, perspectives, commentaries and hot topics) published in print in 2018 (n = 38).

From: Neuropsychopharmacology (NPP): update on relationships between online attention and citation counts

Fig. 4

A Correlation between Altmetrics scores and total number of citations, as identified on the ISI Web of Science. B Correlation between mentions on Twitter and total number of citations. C Correlation between mentions on news platforms and total number of citations. Closed data points, black solid lines and text represent initial analysis of 2018 in-print front-half materials. Open data points, grey dotted lines and text represent relationships between 2017 in-print front-half materials (n = 36) published in our original report, for comparison. Boxed data point indicates a putative outlier; removal of this data point did not change statistical outcomes with the exception that a significant relationship also emerged between citations and news mentions.
