Altmetric is a system that tracks the attention that research outputs such as scholarly articles and data sets receive online. It pulls data from
- Social media such as Twitter and Facebook
- Traditional media - both mainstream (e.g., The Guradian, New York Times) and field specific (e.g., New Scientist, Bird Watching). Many non-English language titles are covered.
- Blogs - both major organizations and individual researchers
- Online reference managers such as Mendeley and CiteULike
McMaster users have access to the licensed version of Altmetric Explorer for Institutions, which provides a McMaster-wide view of the online activity surrounding academic research at the institution.
Researchers, research support staff, and administrators can explore attention on scholarly works, browse by author, group or department for their own institution, benchmark against peer organizations, report on the outcomes of outreach activity, and integrate the insights the data provides into evaluation and review processes.
