Altmetrics in Practice: How Institutions Are Using Altmetric Data to Enhance Administrator, End-User, and Staff Assessment Practices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The big questions many research administrators, librarians, and faculty are asking around altmetrics are:
1. What are altmetrics?
2. How are they being used?
3. How can other organizations integrate this kind of data?

The reality is that many institutions are integrating altmetric data in new and innovative ways to enhance the experience of their researchers, support staff, administrators, and institutional marketing/outreach teams. Join Altmetric.com and customers (including the National Academy of Sciences and Stony Brook Medical Center) as they share why they are investing in altmetrics, how they are using them, and what other institutions -- academic and otherwise -- can gain from integrating this complementary data into their evaluation and assessment practices.
