From expensive academic journal paywalls to the imperfect web of citations in Google Scholar, we have long been tracking the wrong metrics when it comes to assessing the impact of medical publications. The key question we should be asking is:
What difference does this research have on patient outcomes?
Join OurResearch founder Jason Priem – an innovator described by Nature as “transforming open science” and author of the Altmetrics Manifesto – to hear how open access to research combined with new analytics are providing a deeper, more meaningful method of tracking real-world clinical impact on patient journeys. We’ll explore the use of Medical Share of Voice, KOL sentiment and reach, and geographic proliferation as new indicators of impact, moving beyond “scientific popularity”.
