Introduction to Altmetric Explorer (Research Staff Development Opportunity)
Research Staff Development Opportunities.
Altmetric Explorer helps track mentions to research outputs from Twitter, Facebook, news outlets, Wikipedia, Mendeley and lots of other ‘alternative’ sources. This hands-on session will show you how to use the tool to investigate and analyse the reach and impact of your research. You will find out about the background and rationale for altmetrics, understand how to interpret the Altmetric ‘donut’, know how to track media attention to research publications, find out who is saving your publications in Mendeley, and discover how you could use Altmetric data in grant applications, CVs, and impact statements.
