New Report: “The State of Altmetrics: A Tenth Anniversary Celebration”

From Altmetric/Digital Science:

In honour of the ten-year anniversary of the publication of the Altmetrics Manifesto, Altmetric has published a landmark report, The State of Altmetrics.

In the report, changemakers including Altmetric founder Euan Adie, esteemed scientometricians Lutz Bornmann, Zohreh Zahedi and Saeed Ul-Hassan, and the original Altmetrics Manifesto authors Jason Priem, Paul Groth and Cameron Neylon reflect on a decade of altmetrics innovation and growth.

Topics discussed include the ethics and responsible use of altmetrics, using machine learning to understand how communities coalesce around particular research topics online, and possibilities for leveraging altmetrics as “sensors” to detect the spread of disease. The report also shares the results of a worldwide community survey, which surmises that altmetrics will continue to grow in their adoption and use.
