A new research impact measuring system
AbstractFor years, scientists have been trying to measure the quality of
scholarly work by the number of times an article is cited in other
articles or the impact factor of the journal which published an article.
However, citation is a lagging indicator and journal impact factor may
be misleading since a Journal's citation count is usually caused by a
small number of articles in that journal. With the rise of the web as
the archiving and emerging interaction platform, there is a need for new
ways to measure articles and books impact. Altmetrics attempts to use
the online activity to measure impact, buzz, word of mouth for
scientific information and it includes new ways to measure usage at the
citation level. In this workshop, I will explain about application of
altmetrics tools such as: Altmetric.com, Impactstory.org,
Plumanalytics.com, and PLoS metrics.
