Altmetric for government research: Understanding reach and influence
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Gathering reliable and up-to-the-minute data on how research is being received within academic communities and by the public can be challenging.
Altmetric, a leading web-based metrics provider, offer data and tools that give a unique and immediate understanding of the influence that research is having.
in this webinar, Ben Mcleish, Director of Engagement & Advocacy at Altmetric, provides a demonstration of how these insights can provide government departments with:
- An immediate indication of the public’s opinion of published research
- The ability to report on where research has influenced policy
- New ways to identify key opinion leaders and researchers in specific topic areas
