#altmetrics (and why you need to know about them)

Anyone who knows me, knows that if I am not talking about twitter, I am probably talking about altmetrics (see my previous blog posts). Quite a few people (faculty, clinicians, librarians) have asked me about article level metrics (ALMs) of late, so I have put together a brief overview on slideshare as it is a lot easier to explain the concept of altmetrics using visuals rather than text. It is really only the tip of the iceberg as regards ALMs, but the resources linked to within the presentation will provide a lot of further reading if desired. Feedback and comments welcome (by email, twitter or via the comments below).
