I am a librarian ready to pursue my Ph.D programme on Altmetrics. I would like to seek assistant from member of this group. I will need advice from members, papers and conference presentations. Thank you all.

Dear Colleagues,

We’re proud to announce the launch of the Altmetric Ambassadors program! We’ve debuted the Ambassadors program in response to requests to help researchers and librarians worldwide spread the word about altmetrics (in general) and (in particular) at their institutions.

A team of volunteer Ambassadors will:

- Stay up-to-date with the latest altmetrics news and research
- Host brown bags to introduce their colleagues to altmetrics and Altmetric’s tools
- Show their colleagues how to explore the online attention surrounding their work using the Altmetric bookmarklet
- Add Altmetric badges to their personal or lab web pages
- Share their stories to demonstrate how altmetrics can help all researchers

In return, we’ll send you exclusive Altmetric swag, share top-secret development plans for Altmetric products, buy coffee and donuts any time you host an Altmetric-related workshop, and help connect you with a fantastic, international group of like-minded researchers and librarians.

Visit to learn more and register your interest today!

Kind regards,

Cat and the Altmetric team

We have recently had a call for position papers on interdisciplinary perspectives on bibliometrics in the context of the Web Science 2015 Workshop "Quantifying and Analysing Scholarly Communication on the Web (ASCW'15) - What can bibliometrics do for you? What can you do for bibliometrics?". All position papers have now been published on the workshop website under a CC license, and they are currently under an open peer review.

It would be grand to get your view on the issues discussed by the authors. You can access the papers here:

We are currently also welcoming discussants of the above papers. Being a discussant includes (1) preparing a response to one of the accepted paper which will be published on this site, and (2) acting as a discussant of the same paper at the workshop (10 min). Please write a short message to if you are interested!

Does anyone know of research exploring the different social media use rates of different disciplines? For example, I imagine solid state physicists use social media less than people researching nano-robotics, but is that true?

We just released a dataset of scholarly citations in the English Wikipedia by Pubmed / Pubmed Central ID.

The dataset currently includes the first known occurrence of a PMID or PMCID citation in an English Wikipedia article and the associated revision metadata, based on the most recent complete content dump of English Wikipedia. We’re planning on expanding this dataset to include other types of scholarly identifier soon.

Feel free to share this with anyone interested or spread the word via:

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

Lambert Heller

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:

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! :)


Mike Taylor
Mike 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!

The submission deadline of March 03, 2014 for the 10th WIS in Ilmenau (Germany) is approaching. Please consider to contribute to and/or forward to the appropriate groups the opportunity to submit and publish original scientific results to COLLNET 2014. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended article versions the COLLNET Journal of Scientometrics and Information Management. COLLNET 2014 Topics (topics and submission details: see CfP on the site


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).
