Event Date: 17 Dec 2014

Article-Level Metrics help to measure the impact of research by providing a suite of metrics that measure the overall performance and reach of published research articles. They are a comprehensive set of impact indicators that enable numerous ways to assess and navigate research most relevant to the field itself, including:

  • usage
  • citations
  • social bookmarking and dissemination activity
  • media and blog coverage
  • discussion activity and ratings
