Make altmetrics work for you

One of the most difficult things about altmetrics is that they are tracked in many different ways and across many different platforms. This page will go over:

  • Tools to help you manage and track your research outputs and their altmetrics
  • Example profiles.
  • How to make altmetrics work for you.


Impactstory: Your CV, but better.

Impactstory is a tool that gathers altmetrics from many sources under one roof. It is a way to promote, manage, and share your research and scholarship. Some researchers are using Impactstory as an alternative to a static online CV/resume. Impactstory is able to collect this information through ORCID
