Research metrics (also known as altmetrics), immediately measure awareness and interest and give us new ways to uncover and tell the stories of research.
Technologies that encourage communication, sharing and other interaction with research output—leave “footprints” to show the way back to who is interested in the research and why. Technologies that make processing big data possible—make it possible to categorize and analyze all of the metric data from the many interactions.
