This article aims to identify the impact in altmetric sources and type of publishing access in Social Sciences articles. It analyses 1,186 articles affiliated to Peruvian institutions retrieved from Scopus (2011 to 2020) using six altmetric indicators from Altmetric and Dimensions citations. The method used compares altmetric impact in relation to open or restricted access and subject areas: Arts and Humanities, Business and Accounting, Decision Sciences, Economics and Finance, and Psychology. Results show a high correlation between Mendeley reads and citations of Dimensions (r = 0.797), and besides there is a significant difference according to access tandype in mentions from Facebook (p = .000) and Twitter (p = .005). In conclusion, Peruvian Psychology authors publish mostly in some open access route and publications obtain greater visibility in Mendeley and Dimensions when they are published through green route.
