OPERAS Metrics service Born out of the OPERAS project: European Research Infrastructure for the development of open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities; OPERAS seeks to build functionality for research monographs in the European open-science infrastructure. This metrics project normalizes book identifiers (ISBNs, DOIs), provides modular "drivers" to gather various metrics (Google Analytics, JSTOR, COUNTER, etc.) and altmetrics (social media sources), and then aggregates these so publishers have access to usage and traffic data on ebooks. The usage data code has been developed by the UK-based Open Book Publishers. Altmetrics code has been developed by Ubiquity Press. NOTE: Formally HIRMEOS OA metrics, is now the OPERAS Metrics service. HIRMEOS was the name of a specific project, the metrics service is now a service of the OPERAS European research infrastructure.

Paperbuzz Paperbuzz is a tool that calculates metrics from Crossref Event Data: sharing, linking, and referencing articles online. Paperbuzz is developed and maintained by Our Research with the support of the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). Paperbuzz offers an API that is used by PaperbuzzViz, a JavaScript library to visualize the metrics and by the Paperbuzz OJS Plugin that brings these visualizations to OJS article pages, both of which are developed and maintained by PKP.
