Altmetrics are a way of evaluating impact based on more than just citation counts. They can take into account the following, plus much more:-
• Article downloads
• Blog mentions
• Twitter mentions
• Media mentions
Altmetrics can help researchers understand how their outputs are being shared and discussed via social media and online and may supplement the information gained from traditional impact metrics. Watch the video below for an overview on the subject.
