Information Services subscription is subscription service which provides article-level metrics about how research is referenced and shared in a range of social media and in the news.

The College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and the College of Science and Engineering have renewed the subscription for a further year on a trial basis. 

We anticipate that this service will be of interest to a range of stakeholders within the University, including:

  • Authors
  • Research Directors & Heads of Schools
  • Research Administrators
  • Communications & Marketing Professionals
  • Knowledge Exchange Officers


We are very keen to receive feedback on this service from a variety of stakeholders, as this will help us to decide whether or not to pursue a University-wide licence to use this service.   During the trial period, staff and students can sign up for an account . Select “sign up using your site licence” and provide your University of Edinburgh email address.  A ‘getting started’ guide is available under the ‘help’ section, but we can also provide full training on using this service.
