Duke University Implements Altmetric to Track Scholarly Mentions

Duke University chose Altmetric for Institutions to monitor the online dissemination of and engagement with the research of its faculty members and administrators. Using the platform, the Duke community can browse, filter, and report on online mentions of its research in public policy documents, mainstream and social media, online reference managers, Wikipedia, and other forums.

“We wanted to give our faculty a better understanding of who was saying what about their research, beyond just traditional citations, and hope that they will begin to use this data to support and inform more engagement with the wide variety of users and uses of their research, and to demonstrate the broader impacts of their work,” says Kevin Smith, director of Duke’s Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communication.

For more information, read the press release.
