It provides metrics for different research outputs (articles, blog posts, books, source codes, theses/dissertations, videos).

PlumX metrics are integrated on some platforms (such as Mendeley, SSRN, Scopus, Science Direct, Ebsco, Engineering village, etc.). There is also an option in Pure (5.14) to enable PlumX Metrics widget for research output that has DOI/Scopus ID. If a publication in Pure does not have these identifiers, PlumX metrics will not be displayed.
