Altmetrics: beyond bibliometrics in the Social Sciences

24 Oct
14:00-15:00

Moving beyond the traditional bibliometrics of Journal Impact Factor and the author H Index, this 1 hour session discusses alternative metrics used to analyse and inform publishing researchers which draw on online social communication tools. Many scholarly papers are stored online in reference management software, or discussed online via mediums such as Twitter or blogs – learn how to mine this rich source of impact data for metrics on your papers and the papers of key researchers in your field. You will have spotted Altmetric information within our library catalogue, SOLO. We welcome Natalia Madjarevic, Head of Implementations and Support at Altmetric.com for this fascinating update.
