Featured Resource: Guide to Altmetrics

Altmetrics is the use of alternative, or nontraditional, measurements to better understand the extent of a work’s scholarly impact. Altmetrics serve as a complement to traditional metrics (e.g., citation counts) by incorporating statistics regarding usage, capture, and mentions of scholarly works in online environments.
