The last six years have seen an enormous explosion both in the availability of new metrics, and in the interest in emergent types of scholarly output. Altmetrics, socio-economic indicators and many other indicators are vying for your attention; funders and policy-makers are increasingly considering how to use metrics in their decision-making.

Are altmetrics are at risk of becoming just another number that faculty shoehorn into their tenure dossiers, selecting the numbers that make them look the best?

Our four speakers will present new ideas and approaches understanding issues of wider impact, which will be followed by a question and answer session.
