From the Chronicle of Higher Education:

This is a great article about the growing interest in altmetrics. Altmetrics “aims to measure Web-driven scholarly interactions, such as how often research is tweeted, blogged about or bookmarked”. The article talks about Jason Priem (who helped write the altmetrics manifesto) and a new project called Total Impact that, although in its infant stages, is a way to search the Internet for social impact measures.
