  14. 14. Some altmetrics are able to reflect institutional research profiles, suggesting at their connection to scholarly communication. Research in certain fields of science is more likely to gain more attention on specific platforms (e.g. medical research on Twitter).
  15. 15. Our future research will continue to investigate why some research gain higher attention on some platforms compared to other research.
