A new metric based on Web 2.0 measuring the impact of an article using different indicators such as downloads, citations in Wikipedia, tweets, retweets, people saving the article in a citation manager.

The terms "altmetrics" (alternative metrics) and "article level metrics" have been used to describe approaches to measure the impact of scholarship by using new social media tools such as bookmarks, links, blog postings, inclusion in citation management tools and tweets to gauge the importance of scholarly output.

Proponents of altmetrics believe that using altmetrics will help measure the impact of an article in a more comperhensive and objective way thaa was done perviously with journal metrics databases like Journal Citation Reports. However, there are limits to this approach and caution should be used to not rely on any one particular measure in evaluting the importance of scholarship.
