This presentation will discuss new options for extending your scholarship’s reach and for tracking your scholarly influence. DigitalCommons@WayneState is the University’s institutional repository, where we collect and provide perpetual open access to the intellectual output of WSU. Altmetrics, or “alternative metrics”, is a rising trend in scholarly communication, providing non-traditional metrics for assessing scholarly impact, including Twitter and popular news coverage.
