Savvy Researcher: Create and Manage Your Online Scholarly Presence

Read Science Is Suffering Because of Peer Review’s Big Problems by Stefano Balietti in The New Republic, August 9, 2016.


As the scholarly communication is increasingly moving online, new scholars' expectation changed and the need for measuring web-based activity increased.

Altmetrics aims to measure the impact of scholarly works based on their social media effect (article mentions, download counts, pageviews, social bookmarks, academic social sites, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). The combination of altmetrics with traditional citation analysis, article-level metrics (ALMs), want to be an effective way to disaggregate an individual article's impact from the publication in which it appears.
