This presentation is a step by step introduction to ImpactStory, an online tool (by Heather Piwowar and Jason Priem) that helps researchers look at the impact of their research outputs.

You can use ImpactStory to get an idea who is bookmarking, recommending, saving and citing your papers as well as other outputs (e.g. software and blog posts) and where this is happening.

(Note: This is the version 7 of this presentation; due to several changes to ImpactStory a few updates have been required since the original upload)
