Measuring Impact with Altmetrics

4 October 2013

Altmetrics is a major buzz word at the moment and many publishers and others are experimenting with adding additional impact information to their papers. This webcast is a rare opportunity to hear founders of three key altmetrics start ups - Impact Story, Altmetric and Plum Analytics - talk about how they assess impact, what altmetrics mean and what they have observed so far. This webcast will be of interest to researchers, librarians, publishers and others who are either new to altmetrics or want to gain a deeper insight into the potential opportunities and challenges.

Speakers and presentations include: Sian Harris, Editor, Research Information; Heather Piwowar, Co-founder, ImpactStory, 'Empowering scholars through #altmetrics'; Euan Adie, Founder, Altmetric, 'A toolmaker’s perspective'; Andrea Michalek, Co-founder, Plum Analytics, 'The Plum Analytics Approach'.
