Free lunch – new ways to measure your scholarly impact

Assistant Professor Richard Russell’s article, “Aspects of Facial Contrast Decrease with Age and Are Cues for Age Perception,” has an Altmetric score of 585. What does that mean, and why should we care?

Join us for Who’s reading you? Alternative metrics to measure your scholarly impact on Wednesday, 11/6/13, at noon (Specialty Dining Room 19).

A short presentation will introduce altmetrics and describe how they seek to measure scholarly influence beyond traditional impact measurements (like journal impact factor and citation counts). We will show how altmetrics display on journal websites, library databases, and our own institutional repository. We’ll end with a discussion about altmetrics in your disciplines and departments … and fabulous door prizes!

Please RSVP to Janelle Wertzberger (jwertzbe@gettysburg.edu), as space is limited to the first 20 respondents.
