Background

There is a growing interest in using and analysing Altmetrics data for quantifying the impact of research, especially societal impact (Haunschild & Bornmann 2017, Thelwall et al 2016, Bornmann 2014).

This study therefore aimed to explore the usefulness of Altmetric.com data as a means of identifying and categorizing the policy impact of research articles from a single center (the University of Sheffield).
