Image result for Altmetric image

Altmetrics are metrics and qualitative data that are complementary to traditional, citation-based metrics. They can include (but are not limited to) peer reviews on Faculty of 1000, citations on Wikipedia and in public policy documents, discussions on research blogs, mainstream media coverage, bookmarks on reference managers like Mendeley, and mentions on social networks such as Twitter.

Using the Altmetric app that is installed in eResearch, the following list details the papers that have received the most online attention during 2015. The list is arranged in chronological order, by date of publication, and contains three open access papers.
