  1. The article discusses the use of alternative metrics, or altmetrics, in information science by researchers on their resumes to quantify the impact and spread of their work by compiling data on citations, social media mentions, and number of online…
  2. Altmetrics, indices based on social media platforms and tools, have recently emerged as alternative means of measuring scholarly impact. Such indices assume that scholars in fact populate online social environments, and interact with scholarly…
  3. Methods for determining research quality have long been debated but with little lasting agreement on standards, leading to the emergence of alternative metrics. Altmetrics are a useful supplement to traditional citation metrics, reflecting a variety…
  4. The article presents an overview of altmetrics, a novel way to measure the impact and distribution of academic research. A discussion of debate which is being seen in the library, higher eduction and information technology fields in 2013 regarding…
  5. If scholarly communication is broken, how will we fix it? At Impactstory-a non-profit devoted to helping scholars gather and share evidence of their research impact by tracking online usage of scholarship via blogs, Wikipedia, Mendeley, and more-we…
  6. This article provides an introduction to the use of altmetrics as a tool to assess research impact. In particular, it looks at the evidence behind claims that altmetrics allow the impact of research to be measured in days rather than years. Low…
  7. If scholarly communication is broken, how will we fix it? At Impactstory-a non-profit devoted to helping scholars gather and share evidence of their research impact by tracking online usage of scholarship via blogs, Wikipedia, Mendeley, and more-we…
  8. Altmetrics, or alternative metrics, are forging a new way to capture the impact of not only articles, but also scholarly or research “products” by tracking them when they are mentioned online, such as in blogs or social media platforms. While…
  9. Research institutions are under pressure to make their outputs more accessible in order to meet funding requirements and policy guidelines. Libraries have traditionally played an important role by exposing research output through a predominantly…
  10. In this study we examined a sample of 100 European astrophysicists and their publications indexed by the citation database Scopus, submitted to the arXiv repository and bookmarked by readers in the reference manager Mendeley. Although it is believed…
  11. Changes are occurring in scholarly communication and the geography of science.Policymakersand research funding agencies are looking for ways to measure the comprehensive impact of research and benefit from the research experiences of other nations.…
  12. Altmetrics er en ny tilgang til kvantitativ forskningsevaluering, der anvender sociale medier og anden Internet-baseret data, for at evaluere forskningens indflydelse fra andre vinkler end traditionel bibliometrisk forskningsevaluering. Særligt…
  13. The prospects of altmetrics are especially encouraging for research fields in the humanities that currently are difficult to study using established bibliometric methods. Yet, little is known about the altmetric impact of research fields in the…
  14. Career progression for scientists involves an assessment of their contribution to their field and a prediction of their future potential. Traditional measures, such as the impact factor of the journal that a researcher publishes in, may not be an…
