Uncover how science research is shared, used, and measured with altmetrics at the Altmetrics Hackathon on Nov 3, 2012 in San Francisco. Altmetrics are online metrics that capture the many ways in which research articles are shared, commented, reviewed, and put to use. As a set, they collectively tell the larger story of science.
Build new tools and improve existing ones with real time datasets and API services. Create new mashups. Brainstorm the future of tracking science. Fun prizes awarded at the end of the session. View ideas and share your own here.
