A couple of weeks a ago I watched a video where the presenter indicated the uptake/knowledge of altmetrics among faculty is around 7% (that is the number I remember). I would love to watch it again but cannot find it and did not bookmark it at the time :-( Can anybody help? Thanks
Sue Wortman
Sue Wortman Euan Adie, of altmetric.com has presented on the uptake of altmetrics. Slides are here http://www.slideshare.net/BaltimoreNISO/adie-27107508
Recording from October 2013 presentation at NISO is here and his lightning talk starts around 47:25 http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/39680587.

William Gunn Michael Habib has reported a survey of researchers here: http://www.slideshare.net/habibmi/ssp-metrics-mch2
These slides are a bit dated, showing 1% awareness, but I believe he has presented updated results showing 7%, which is actually quite an increase in a year!

Hi!

My name is Lambert, I'm from the Open Science Lab of TIB Hannover. (TIB is the German National Library for Science and Technology.)

12 month ago, I started with two colleagues from Humboldt University Berlin a betting game at a library conference in Berlin. (Cf. our blog posts in Google's english: http://translate.google.de/translate?hl=de&sl=de&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fblogs.tib-hannover.de%2Ftib%2F2013%2F02%2F21%2Finetbibs-bet-on-open-access-and-open-science%2F)

From our 12 bets on the "future of Open Access and Open Science", one question was to predict if (and when) the following will happen:

"Among the major universities (the 400 universities in the most recent Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings) at least 20 explicitly use altmetrics in tenure decisions or allocation of resources."

Participants could place their coins on "will happen until 2014-03-05".

It's not trivial to find evidences for something like that. Do you know if there is a collection of examples in the recent literature about altmetrics? Or do you know of any examples at all? Any hint would be of great help, thank you in advance! :)

Best,

Lambert

Michael Taylor Lambert, I have been trying to find a source (or any clue) for this quote, but I've drawn a blank, I'm afraid. I've heard rumours, but I can't find any facts. If I hear any of them, I'll let you know!

About this group

The aim of this group is to discuss new approaches to the assessment of scholarly impact based on new metrics. altmetrics go beyond traditional citation-based indicators as well as raw usage factors (such as downloads or click-through rates) in that they focus on readership, diffusion and reuse indicators that can be tracked via blogs, social media, peer production systems, collaborative annotation tools (including social bookmarking and reference management services).
