Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

Altmetrics, or “alternative metrics,” represent an emerging field of new methods for measuring the impact and usage of scholarly works. Based on the results of a faculty survey and a trial of providing altmetrics to articles in ScholarsArchive@OSU, the OSU Libraries are looking forward to using PlumX to provide article-level, and optionally institutional-level, altmetrics to all scholarly works produced by OSU researchers.

On February 2 from 9:30-11:00 a.m. in the Willamette Rooms on the third floor of the Valley Library, Victor Castellanos from Plum Analytics will give a presentation about PlumX, a suite of programs that use modern metrics to help answer questions about research impact, engagement and visibility. The presentation will be followed with a live demo of the product and a Q&A session. 

Altmetrics have a number of advantages compared to citation-based measures including speed of accumulation, breadth of impact, and diversity of research products (software and videos). 

Plum Analytics, a division of EBSCO Information Services, designs a suite of programs called PlumX that tracks and gathers metrics in five different categories related to their usage, captures, mentions, social media and citations.  

The presenter has more than fifteen years of experience working with academic, corporate and medical libraries as well as offices of research and sponsored programs, and he has experience with funding opportunities software to locate financing for research and helping academic institutions promote research by providing bibliographic reference management tools.
