Through sharing of use cases, tips, and open discussion, this session will help participants to develop a nuanced, strategic framework for incorporating and promoting wider adoption of altmetrics throughout the research lifecycle at their institution and beyond.

This course will examine, cover and discuss:
  • The discourse around open scholarship.

  • The tools that both researchers and librarians are using to engage in open work.
