In this report, we recount the lessons learned from a pilot project undertaken jointly by the Association of University Presses (AUPresses) and Altmetric which aimed to understand how altmetrics could support the many functions of the average university press: recruiting new monograph ideas and authors, marketing a press’s current publications and backlist, tracking sales, and more. Could this nascent type of data actually help?
