Researchers should use altmetrics data to advance their careers

Dr. Donald Samulack, US Operations, Editage, Cactus Communications, in conversation with Euan Adie, Founder and CEO of Altmetric

Over the years, more and more researchers are realizing the significance of measuring the impact of their work by excluding the impact factor of the journals in which they publish. They look at ways in which their research has contributed to society, e.g., by helping reform policy or health care. In this segment, Euan expands on this trend and emphasizes the need for researchers across the globe to focus on altmetrics and on using this data to provide evidence of the impact their work has had. This is a win-win situation because not only do researchers get to prove how their work has been useful, but funders evaluating their work also get to see how it has helped achieve their own mission. Thus, tools such as Altmetric are very helpful in advancing researchers’ careers.
