Altmetrics and Revolutions:New media, new metrics, and a new scholarly communications system.
/Jason Priem, NCSU
In growing numbers, scholars are moving their workflows online. As that happens, important, once-invisible parts of the scientific process--conversations, arguments, recommendations, reads, bookmarks, and more--are leaving online traces.

Mining these traces or "altmetrics" can give us faster, more diverse, and more accurate data of scholarly impact. What is more, this information could inform powerful, network-aware filters that supplement and even replace the increasingly overwhelmed peer-review system. I'll discuss the current research and practice of altmetrics, as well as their long-term implications: the potential to power a fast, open, and truly web-native scholarly communication ecosystem.
