Are Altmetrics Effective in Transdisciplinary Research Fields?
Altmetric Coverage of Outputs in Educational Research
This paper analyzes the coverage of altmetrics for heterogeneous scientific and extra-scientific outputs in a transdisciplinary research field. The transdisciplinary field of educational research is used as a case study to get first insight how current altmetric tools cover the field on the levels of its general publication output, and on the level of research relevant journals. Additionally, an experimental approach analyzes the Twitter mentions of a transdisciplinary research report.
