Limited Capacity seats available

Article level metrics are immediacy indicators that speak to attention and engagement with research content NOW (not months or years from now as with citations/impact factor). From grant proposals and tenure cases to assessing departmental impact, ALMs are more useful than ever. Learn where you can find these, who is using them, and how they can aid your patrons.

Most librarians and end users don't realize that article level metrics (specifically the Altmetric donut or badge) can be seen in institutional repositories, CRIS systems (like Elements, PURE, or Converis), thousands of journal article pages, in discovery systems, and even SCOPUS.  How did they get there? What are they for? What can they tell your users and institutions about the attention their research is receiving from around the world?

As an ALM provider, we monitor and report attention to articles and datasets by tracking stable identifiers. The resulting ALMs benefit users from across the scholarly communications landscape from the marketing departments of publishers to the communications offices of universities to individual PIs and lab heads making the case for grant funding or tenure and promotion. Librarians integrate this data to underscore the value of existing investments like institutional repositories and discovery systems as well as help patrons maintain and curate their online identities.

Join a leading ALM provider and users from publishers to libraries as they walk through their integrations, what the data tells them, why they use it, and how that data can be useful for your users and institutions.
