Measuring the Impact of Research - Alternative indicators
Measuring the Impact of Research – Alternative indicators (MIRA) is a research project founded by the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of Research (ANVUR – http://www.anvur.org/index.
php?lang=it#) aimed at investigating altrnative metrics (aka altmetrics) as a new means for measuring the quality of research products and researchers. Altmetrics were introduced by Priem et al. in 2010 as non-traditional metrics proposed as an alternative to more traditional citation impact metrics, such as impact factor and h-index.
MIRA is focused on (i) analysing the correlation between altmetrics and traditional metrics as well as (ii) studying new impact emerging from this analysis.
