Altmetrics are “alternative metrics” to measure the influence and reach of scholarly output on the Web through peer-review counts, influential news sites and blog posts, citation manager bookmarks such as Mendeley, Wikipedia citations, and social media mentions on sites such as Twitter and Facebook. The librarians have created a research guide on Altmetrics to help you learn more about what they are and how to find metrics on specific journals.
