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

It is my pleasure to invite all interested researcher to our conference on Webometrics, Informetrics and Scientometrics (10th WIS) in Ilmenau (Germany). Special tracks on altmetrics and new approaches for analyzing and calculating the impact of scholarship have to be filled with life. Please have a look at the CfP http://is.gd/KO3Ltz and follow us on Twitter @collnet2014.
Merry Christmas to everybody! Bernd

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).
