The traditional methods of counting citations and downloads to measure impact are no longer sufficient in measuring the broader scope of research output, particularly with regard to its impact beyond the bounds of research communities. As a result, there has been a desire in the scholarly community to gain a better understanding of the reach and attention a paper receives outside limit in academia. Altmetrics or alternative metrics have evolved to help answer those questions by tracking and collating mentions and shares of academic research papers and other outputs such as datasets, athwart traditional and social media outlets, blogs, public policy documents, post publication peer-review forums and online reference managers.
