Altmetrics stands for alternative metrics and are complementary to citation-based metrics. In simple terms, Altmetrics are new metrics based on the social web.
Altmetrics can tell you how often journal articles and other scholarly outputs like datasets are mentioned in social web tools such as Facebook, Twitter, blogs, news media or online reference management tools.
Two main altmetrics providers are Altmetric.com and Plum analytics.
Altmetrics sources can include (but are not limited to):
- social networking (ResearchGate)
- social bookmarking (Mendeley)
- social data sharing (Figshare)
- microblogging (Twitter)
- wikis (Wikipedia)
- social recommendation and reviewing (F1000)
Altmetrics data can be used for example to:
- Demonstrate evidence of broader impact and engagement for use in funding applications or to be shown on your CV
- Find out who is talking about your research, and what they’re saying
- Monitor interest and dissemination of your research around the world in social media
