According to the National National Information Standards Organization, Altmetrics is a broad term that encapsulates the collection of multiple digital indicators related to scholarly work. These indicators are derived from activity and engagement among diverse stakeholders and scholarly outputs in the research ecosystem, including the public sphere (NISO, 2016). Altmetrics are complementary to traditional citation-based metrics and can help clarify how research outputs are being shared and engaged with both inside and outside the academy. The Altmetric Explorer for Institutions platform provides advanced and customizable options for researchers, faculty, staff and students at York University that are looking to track the altmetric attention associated with specific research outputs of interest. The Explorer pulls in several sources, including (but not limited to) policy and patent citations as well as news and social media mentions.
