Altmetrics can help you track the views, downloads and mentions of your published research outputs, online posts, videos and music. This session is aimed at academic staff and graduate researchers to assist in understanding what altmetrics are, how they are collected and measured, and how you can use and interpret them. It will include tips on how you can improve your altmetrics using social media, and an overview of a selection of altmetrics tools that gather data from social media and other online sources.
