Symposium II: The measurement of the transfer and impact: Alternative metrics
Altmetrics allows to measure how research outputs are discussed and mentioned far away from the scholarly world. These metrics value the way in which the research papers impact on the public opinion (social networks), mass media (blogs and news), innovation (patents) or education (Wikipedia). This symposium will discuss the power of Altmetrics as measure instrument of the knowledge transfer and the social undersanding of science, along to advantages and limitations of alternative metrics to research evaluation.
Moderator: José Luis Ortega, IESA-CSIC
