** apologies for cross-posting **

Altmetric today announced it has begun to track data from the Open Syllabus
Project <http://opensyllabusproject.org/>, which details where ~1 million
individual books are included in the syllabi of over 4,000 academic
institutions around the world.

For the first time, these unique data are combined with other altmetric
indicators to provide quantitative insights that can help authors and
publishers monitor the uptake and influence of their books.
