I’m proud to share the release of a new altmetrics educational website: What
Are Altmetrics? <http://www.whatarealtmetrics.com>
This guide to “all things altmetrics” builds upon the popular altmetrics

developed while at Impactstory, updating the existing resources and adding
a whole lot more.
What Are Altmetrics? includes:
An updated list of examples of how researchers, librarians, publishers,
and funding agencies are using altmetrics;
Expert recommendations for the responsible use of altmetrics in CVs,
grant applications, and tenure dossiers;
A curated list of 40+ handouts, presentations, videos, Libguides, and
readings that you can use as a starting point for developing your own
outreach efforts; and
Information on how to find altmetrics data, using the most popular
We’re releasing this guide under a CC-BY license

I’ve striven to make the What Are Altmetrics? guide a comprehensive,
objective source of information for anyone who’s new to the field and wants
to learn more. We’ll continue to improve the site over time--if you have
suggestions for resources, edits, or any other additions, please email me
