Event Description

Rather than solely tracking the number of times a work is cited in scholarly literature, altmetrics--alternative ways of measuring the use of, and impact of, scholarship--use social media and other web-based forms of scholarly communication to create a more comprehensive picture of research reach.

The ULS has partnered with Plum Analytics in a pilot project to help Pitt scholars track, assess, and compare scholarly impact. Through Plum Analytics, researchers can make their scholarship more accessible, promote their research, and connect with other scholars.

Andrea Michalek, co-founder of Plum Analytics, will talk about her organization's efforts and how they can benefit Pitt scholars. Staff from the ULS Office of Scholarly Communication and Publishing will also be on hand to share the latest developments in Open Access and digital publishing.
