Measuring Scholarly Impact

This guide provides information on documenting and analyzing the impact of scholarly work.

Article Metrics (aka Altmetrics)

Altmetrics can help you demonstrate attention to your work and perhaps begin to see its influence. They can be straightforward, such as the number of citations to an individual article, number of mentions on social media (retweets, Facebook shares), or the fact that your article was included as a reference in a Wikipedia article. The can also be more complicated, such as readers on Mendeley or Research Gate as reported by a database.
