Workshop: Altmetrics - understanding and using altmetrics for visibility/impact assessment
For many years, bibliometric analysis has complemented expert panels when it comes to evaluating published science. Quite recently, other ways of measuring the “impact” of individual articles were launched under the name altmetrics (alternative metrics). Where citation analysis is based on the citation counts, altmetric analysis is based on many factors, including page views, downloads, where and how many times the article is mentioned in the news, on blogs, Twitter and other social media. In this workshop, we will discuss the phenomenon, how to interpret it and how to use it.
This workshop is for doctoral students and researchers at KI. You must have and supply an email-address with the ending @ki.se. Register before April 24.
The workshop is held in a computer room at KIB, but feel free to bring your own computer.
The workshop is held in English (but we also speak Swedish).Contact person: Sara Lind
