Altmetric Unveils 'The State of Altmetrics' Report

Altmetric, part of Digital Science, rolled out “The State of Altmetrics” report to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the publication of “Altmetrics: A Manifesto.” Among other contributors, “Altmetric founder Euan Adie, esteemed scientometricians Lutz Bornmann, Zohreh Zahedi and Saeed Ul-Hassan, and the original Altmetrics Manifesto authors Jason Priem, Paul Groth and Cameron Neylon reflect on a decade of altmetrics innovation and growth.”

Topics the report covers include “the ethics and responsible use of altmetrics, using machine learning to understand how communities coalesce around particular research topics online, and possibilities for leveraging altmetrics as ‘sensors’ to detect the spread of disease. The report also shares the results of a worldwide community survey, which surmises that altmetrics will continue to grow in their adoption and use.”
