How do I remove the Plum Print from my EDS or EBSCOhost profile?

Customers can use the Plum Print feature to visualize the research impact of items such as articles, books chapters, e-books, and institutional repository materials in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) and EBSCOhost. Powered by the PlumX Suite, the Plum Print visually changes depending on the altmetrics found in each of the five categories: Usage, Captures, Mentions, Social Media and citations.

When enabled in an EDS or EBSCOhost profile, the Plum Print will appear in the search results and detailed records, giving researchers a highly visual way of evaluating resources, and the ability to quickly focus on information of interest to them. Hovering over the Plum Print highlights a brief visual breakdown of the altmetrics, and clicking on it brings users to the Plum Suite platform for more in-depth information.
