Colorado PROFILES Now Featuring Altmetrics

The Colorado PROFILES database now includes altmetrics data (from Altmetric.com) with many faculty publications.  Altmetrics complement citation metrics and offer a view of research featured on social media, research collaboration sites, and news outlets, revealing that scholarly work reaches beyond a specialized and localized research community.  If a publication is associated with the colorful altmetric icon AltIconBigRectangle , click it and you can learn about the article’s tweets, mentions, blogging, downloads and more.
