Canadian Association of Research Libraries Publishes Altmetrics in Context

OTTAWA, December 9, 2013 - The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) is pleased to announce the publication of Altmetrics in Context. As scholarly communication takes on new forms and moves increasingly to digital and open access venues, the value of new types of metrics is increasingly important for the research community. It is causing discussion and, in some camps, heated debate.

Altmetrics report the impact of a wide range of research outputs, including data sets, articles and code. This document, available on the CARL Website, provides a quick introduction to this new field of research impact assessment and encourages researchers to use altmetrics in their work.
