Abstract


In the last year, the development of tools even more web 2.0 oriented has profoundly changed the scientific communication process. Many web tools have emerged including the so-called social media and social network. From here the need for new indicators to measure the influence of these tools on the scientific community and the emergence of alternative metrics. Altmetrics combines the traditional bibliometrics tool with the use of the web. Aim of the workshop was to show how a librarian can support researchers in improving their impact on the society and on the academic world, using alternative metric tools.
