Who's talking about your research online
A new way to track who's talking about your research
Researchers are increasingly required to demonstrate the impact that their research is having beyond traditional academia. The emerging area of altmetrics offers new and powerful ways to track and report on the online attention of research.
This session will provide an overview of the tools and support that the Library provides to University of Manchester researchers in this new area of scholarly communications.
During this session we will consider the following:
How are altmetrics being used by publishers, funders and research institutions?
How can I find out my own altmetric data?
How can I benefit from altmetric data?
