*Call for contributions: altmetrics15 workshop

*altmetrics15: 5 years in, what do we know?*

Altmetrics intend to measure impact of scholars and scholarly documents not
captured by traditional bibliometrics, which are usually restricted to
counting peer-reviewed journal articles and citations within them. Five
years after the publication of the altmetrics manifesto
<>, it seems time to take stock of
altmetrics. The goal of this year’s workshop is to provide a platform to
discuss scholarly research related to altmetrics and to foster
collaboration between researchers and practitioners, focusing on lessons
learned as well as future challenges.

altmetrics15 is a follow-up to the successful altmetrics11, altmetrics12
and altmetrics14 workshops and will encourage collaboration and
cross-pollination between research and practice, combining academic
presentations with group discussions. The workshop is co-organized with the 2nd
Altmetrics Conference 2:AM <> and will
take place on *9 October 2015* at the Amsterdam Science Park

We are soliciting empirical and theoretical contributions for short
presentations and as a basis for discussion groups, which will be the main
focus of the workshop. Submissions can focus on empirical analyses, novel
theoretical frameworks, original datasets or represent a position paper and
should be submitted as an extended abstract (max 1,000 words) via EasyChair
<> by *1 September 2015*

While an abstract is not a requirement to attend the workshop, we strongly
encourage prospective participants to submit a contribution to seed the
discussions. All accepted submissions will be made available via the workshop
website <> prior to the workshop. A
limited number of contributions will be selected for short presentations.
