Today, Altmetric announce that both the University of Liverpool and Liverpool University Press have now joined a growing number of academic institutions and publishers in adopting  Altmetric for Institutions and Altmetric Badges.

This adoption will help their faculty, management, and consumers of their content monitor and analyse the online attention surrounding their published research.

Liverpool-University-PressLiverpool University Press, first established in 1899, focuses on the dissemination of high-quality scholarly research and promoting learning and culture through the publication of books and journals. Working in collaboration with the university library and research administration office, the move to implement Altmetric was a high priority for the press. Clare Hooper, Head of Journals says:

“Central to our objectives is to ensure that the research we publish is achieving as much visibility and reach as possible. Integrating the Altmetric badges into our platform enables us to monitor this activity on a daily basis, and demonstrate our commitment to effectively disseminating the work of our authors”

University_of_Liverpool_logo_2007The University of Liverpool is one of the great centres of research, knowledge and innovation and their pioneering reputation attracts students, experts and partners from around the world. Martin Wolf, Research Support Lead on behalf of the University Library adds of the implementation:

 “We’re keen to examine how and in what contexts the outputs of University of Liverpool researchers are being discussed, and Altmetric for Institutions should prove a useful tool for doing so.”
