Google Funding Helps Altmetric and Nature Study the Impact of Journalism

Altmetric and Nature will get backing from the Google News Initiative’s Digital News Innovation Fund to create what they are calling a “change the world impact tracker” digital platform for measuring the real-world impact of journalism, including driving policy changes, triggering investigations, or inspiring social media debates. The press release notes that “article badges and dashboards [will display] impact information to readers, editors, publishers and funders. This helps to demonstrate the value of journalism to readers, and helps to make the case that journalism is worth investing in.”

“Altmetric has extensive experience and established technology tracking scientific article impacts, and partnering with Nature will allow us to apply that expertise to their high quality journalism,” says Kathy Christian, Altmetric’s CEO.

For more information, read the press release.
