Author(s): Uma Rani Nagella

Altmetrics are increasingly being used and discussed as an expansion of the tools available for measuring the scholarly impact of research in the knowledge environment. The NISO Alternative Assessment Metrics Project was begun in July 2013 with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to address several areas of limitations and gaps that hinder the broader adoption of altmetrics. Extensively studied the altmetrics literature and other communications and discussed in depth various stakeholders' perspectives and requirements for these new evaluation measures.
