This workshop will take a prolonged and pragmatic look at modern metrics, aka altmetrics, to enable attendees to get their questions answered about what altmetrics are and how can they be used. The centerpiece of the deep dive session will be hearing from people who are using new metrics to tell the stories about their research by addressing a variety of real life use cases.

For over 50 years metrics based on citation counts have been the tried and true measure of scholarly impact.  With advancements in technologies that encourage communication and interaction, and the ability to process big data, new information is shedding light on scholarly impact. These modern metrics are often called alternative metrics, or altmetrics – a catchall phrase that means everything except citations and usage.

Through real life use cases, this workshop will take a pragmatic look at the following questions:

•    What are altmetrics?
•    Are these metrics really alternative?
•    How can I use them?
•    What do they tell me?
•    How can I measure them?
•    Do citations and altmetrics fit together and how?

Following the session, attendees should have a very good understanding of what altmetrics are, how they are gathered, and how they can use them.
