Introducing altmetrics to the Journal of the Medical Library Association

Katherine G. Akers

Abstract


The Journal of the Medical Library Association’s (JMLA’s) website now shows a range of article-level metrics (e.g., article views, online mentions, social media attention) for each published article. This editorial explains how ”altmetrics“ may be better than traditional citations in reflecting the impact of JMLA articles on the practice of health sciences librarianship and provides tips for how to increase the impact of your articles.
