What can altmetrics tell us about the research impact of a scientist? How can we best combine alternative and traditional metrics to gain informed insights about research quality and impact of an academic institution? And is it alternative metrics or article level metrics? Or both? What do altmetrics actually capture? During this seminar these questions were discussed.
