My Altmetric blog post on the LSE Future of Academic Impact conference (7 December 2012) was  published as “Editor’s Choice” at Open Access Now (11 December 2012).

It was also published by the LSE Impact of Social Sciences blog under the title “A new paradigm of scholarly communications is emerging: A report from the Future of Impact conference” (12 December 2012).

With many thanks to both publications and to Altmetric for allowing the reblogging of the piece.

For another report on the LSE event, see Dr David McGillivray’s Storify, “Narrating impacts in the Arts & Humanities” (12 December 2012).

Today the Altmetric blog published my first post in the “Fieldwork” series, an entry on online attention in the humanities and the REF.

In the “Fieldwork” series of blog posts, we will explore through journal and article-level stories whether alt-metrics can provide a holistic image of impact on diverse audiences.
