One thing that should not be neglected in upgrading the level of citation is by paying attention to almetric score. This score is an online scoring gauged from research publication through social media, news portas, blogs, and scientific sites. Through this score, both editorial boards of journals and researchers can examine how wide scientific articles are published and how often the articles are accessed.
Other than that, for editorial boards of journals, other numbers are also significant to the reputation of the journals, namely Impact Factor and H-index. Additionally, almetric score is important to support the expansion of scientific journal publication, particularly for authors who look for further information of particular journals.
