The power of altmetrics on a scholar’s CV; 10 benefits to scholars and scholarship when altmetrics ar embedded in the CV

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

Abstract

Alternative metrics demonstrate the value and influence of scholars’ work apart from traditional citation counts and can enhance the impact of a CV. Altmetrics provide additional, supplementary information and can balance misleading metrics tied to particular journals. More timely than traditional metrics, altmetrics quickly reveal the impact of recent work and add authority to different types of scholarly products not captured as articles. Altmetrics can capture social media references that escape traditional metrics and reflect public engagement prompted by scholarly writing. The availability of altmetrics expands publishing opportunities to include new venues and stimulates innovative strategies for evaluating research. When included in a CV altmetrics must be accurate, clear and meaningful.
