Altmetrics for large, multidisciplinary research groups: A case study of the Leibniz Association

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract

This explorative case study uses ImpactStory and Webometric Analyst to download altmetric indicators for publications of institutes of the multidisciplinary Leibniz Association. The results of the altmetrics analysis show that the reference manager Mendeley is most heavily used across disciplines, that further social media platforms are preferred by different disciplines, and that altmetrics can complement traditional measures of research impact (e.g., citation counts) where data is sparse. We also aim at providing lessons learned of altmetrics studies which may assist others when faced with similar questions.
