The Altmetric Story
“When I was still in the lab and writing code, the way to get credit for new software was to have a short descriptive article about it published in the annual web services or database issue of a journal with a decent impact factor. That’s flawed – there are better ways of telling the story of research outputs than just pointing to them and the journal they’re published in.”
– Euan Adie, Altmetric Founder
