It would be grand to get your view on the issues discussed by the authors. You can access the papers here: http://ascw.know-center.tugraz.at/
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
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: https://twitter.com/WikiResearch/status/562422538613956608
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! :)
Merry Christmas to everybody! Bernd

We are iRiS Lab at University of Pittsburgh and are conducting a study to learn how researchers use academic social networking sites. Please find the following link to the questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about your attitudes toward your usages of Mendeley.
We will only analyze your answers in aggregation, and will not release them to others. This study has been approved by the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Board (IRB# PRO12090367). We hope you can participate in our study. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.

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).
