If your editorial board is not yet tracking the altmetrics impact of your journal’s articles, you may be wondering how you can use altmetrics data to improve your journal’s outreach and engagement strategy and where to begin.

On March 30, 2016 at 10AM EST/3pm BST, Altmetric and Scholastica are co-hosting “Altmetrics for journal editors: engagement, influence and authors,” a free webinar that will overview what altmetrics are, ways to collect and interpret altmetrics data, and how your journal can benefit from tracking altmetrics.

You’ll learn:

  • What altmetrics are and how you can track them at your journal (including free tools!)
  • How tracking altmetrics can help you attract more readers and submissions

Webinar speakers will share strategies that journals of all sizes, regardless of budget, can use to begin gathering and applying altmetrics insights.
