Scholars are looking beyond traditional metrics to show the impact their work can have in the online world, while publishers are looking to show more value for their content. This has led to looking at other sources of data to determine other ways to consider value. This webcast will highlight the work scholars and organizations are doing around alternative metrics and article-level use to expand the definition of the impact of scholarly exchange.
