Altmetrics, another view on impact

  1. 1. Altmetrics, another view on impact Wouter Gerritsma, January 2015
  2. 2. Altmetrics?  New suit of metrics introduced by Priem et al. 2010 http://altmetrics.org/manifesto/ ● A better filter and an alternative to citations and peer review  Other terms: ● Article level metrics ● Influmetrics ● Social media metrics ● Alternative metrics
  3. 3. Article level metrics?
  4. 4. Altmetrics promises  A proxy for scientific impact ● More timely than citations  Broader impact than measured by citations only ● Societal impact  Impact of more varied outputs ● Capturing impacts of other publication types ● Measuring other scientific outputs (data sets, ELN, code) ● Measuring other forms of influence (press, blogs, twitter etc.)
