Digital Scholarship has released the Altmetrics
Bibliography, which includes over 50 selected
English-language articles and technical reports that are
useful in understanding altmetrics.


The "altmetrics" concept is still evolving. In "The
Altmetrics Collection," Jason Priem, Paul Groth, and Dario
Taraborelli define altmetrics as follows:

"Altmetrics is the study and use of scholarly impact
measures based on activity in online tools and environments.
The term has also been used to describe the metrics
themselves—one could propose in plural a "set of new
altmetrics." Altmetrics is in most cases a subset of both
scientometrics and webometrics; it is a subset of the
latter in that it focuses more narrowly on scholarly
influence as measured in online tools and environments,
rather than on the Web more generally."

Sources have been published from January 2001 through
September 2013.
