Workshop: Tracking societal attention with Altmetric Explorer

13 February 2019

When: Tu 19-02-2019
Where: University of Groningen Library, Broerstraat 4, Neurdenburgzaal, 1st floor

On 19 February Research Impact Services will organize two introductory workshops to help you learn how to use the Altmetric Explorer with understanding and ease:

From 1 - 2.30 PM: Altmetric for Research support and Communications
From 3 - 4.30 PM: Altmetric for Researchers (incl. PhD students), Research managers and Research support

Thousands of conversations about scholarly content happen online every day. Altmetric Explorer is a tool that tracks a range of sources – from the news, to social media, policy documents, blogs and patents, to capture and collate this activity. It is a new metric tool that gives researchers and support staff insight into the societal relevance of the work they care about, and it is now available to the University of Groningen.

If you would like to attend one of the workshops, please sign up here. Places are limited, so do sign up as soon as you can!

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is intended for researchers as well as research managers and research support staff. If you want to:

  • monitor the reach of scholarly content outside of academic publications,
  • demonstrate societal impact,
  • showcase influence, or
  • identify the most effective communication channels,

then Altmetric can work for you!

What will you learn?

In the workshops you will learn:

  • how Altmetric Explorer tracks attention,
  • what kind of questions can be addressed with Altmetric Explorer,
  • how to conduct searches on different levels and make different types of reports and alerts, and
  • how to interpret the results.
