*altmetrics17. The dependencies of altmetrics*

altmetrics17 < <http://altmetrics.org/altmetrics17/>
http://altmetrics.org/altmetrics17/> is part of the altmetrics workshop
series organized since 2011 and will take place in conjunction with the 4th
Altmetrics Conference (4:AM) < <http://altmetricsconference.com/>
http://altmetricsconference.com/>, at Ryerson University in Toronto on *26
September 2017*.


This year’s workshop will focus on the dependencies of altmetrics.

Altmetrics are heavily shaped, if not completely driven, by data
availability, technical affordances of underlying platforms and data
providers. Against this background, the altmetrics17 workshop will have a
special focus on the dependencies of altmetrics and their potential effects
on altmetric research, the role of altmetrics in research evaluation and the
effects on scholarly communication in general. The workshop particularly
invites contributions that address the workshop’s theme directly or
indirectly, analyze effects of the dependencies, and propose solutions and
alternative frameworks in which to study altmetrics.


*Call for contributions*

We are soliciting empirical and theoretical contributions for short
presentations and as a basis for discussions, which will be the main focus
of the altmetrics17 workshop. Submissions can focus on empirical analyses,
novel theoretical frameworks, original datasets or represent a position
paper. The goal of the workshop is to discuss, exchange and foster
collaboration on altmetrics between researchers and practitioners.

Contributions will be curated by the altmetrics17 committee for their
relevance and technical soundness and selected for short presentations.


*How to submit*

Please provide an extended abstract (max 1,000 words) presenting your
altmetrics research contribution and highlighting particular issues you
would like to discuss with other workshop participants. Abstracts need to be
submitted via EasyChair <
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=altmetrics17> by *31 July 2017*.

Please include a link to any relevant artifact (e.g., a dataset, plots,

slidedeck) you wish to present and discuss, after archiving it via an
appropriate repository (e.g., Dryad, figshare, GitHub, SlideShare, etc.).
