Altmetrics, also known as Alternative Metrics, are non-traditional bibliometrics that provide insights into what is being said about research in non-scholarly forums and how research is being used to create public policy and solve real-world problems. Altmetrics could be used to complement the traditional research metrics which are quantitative rankings based on citation analysis of a researcher's scholarly publications.
