Introduction to Altmetric Explorer Online
Join the UAB Libraries for an introductory webinar covering the basics of alternative metrics (altmetrics) and the tools and data that Altmetric Explorer offers. Altmetric Explorer tracks thousands of online sources for mentions of articles, books, and chapters, recording each mention in real time. Citation data from Altmetric is also integrated into faculty profiles within the UAB Scholars and UAB Profiles systems.
What are altmetrics? Altmetrics are metrics and qualitative data that are complementary to traditional, citation-based metrics. They can include (but are not limited to) peer reviews on Faculty of 1000, citations on Wikipedia and in public policy documents, discussions on research blogs, mainstream media coverage, bookmarks on reference managers like Mendeley, and mentions on social networks such as Twitter.
This workshop is sponsored by the UAB Libraries’ Office of Scholarly Communication.
