** apologies for cross-posting and a bit of self-promotion **

I’m proud to share the release of a new altmetrics educational website: What
Are Altmetrics? <http://www.whatarealtmetrics.com>

This guide to “all things altmetrics” builds upon the popular altmetrics
Libguides <http://blog.impactstory.org/steal-altmetrics-libguide/> I
developed while at Impactstory, updating the existing resources and adding
a whole lot more.

What Are Altmetrics? includes:


   An updated list of examples of how researchers, librarians, publishers,
   and funding agencies are using altmetrics;

   Expert recommendations for the responsible use of altmetrics in CVs,
   grant applications, and tenure dossiers;

   A curated list of 40+ handouts, presentations, videos, Libguides, and
   readings that you can use as a starting point for developing your own
   outreach efforts; and

   Information on how to find altmetrics data, using the most popular
   altmetrics apps.

We’re releasing this guide under a CC-BY license
<https://creativecommons.org/licenses/>, meaning that you can freely copy,
adapt, and remix its contents with attribution!

Check it out! <http://www.whatarealtmetrics.com>

I’ve striven to make the What Are Altmetrics? guide a comprehensive,
objective source of information for anyone who’s new to the field and wants
to learn more. We’ll continue to improve the site over time--if you have
suggestions for resources, edits, or any other additions, please email me
at stacy at altmetric.com.

Many thanks,

Stacy Konkiel
