Today’s been a busy day; today the Guardian Higher Education Network published a piece by me on qualitative sharing, here.

It’s not meant to be a negative critique of altmetrics or statistical cybermetrics (both projects/methodologies I admire), but a call to combine the quantitative and the qualitative when it comes to assessing the correlations between online metrics and the impact of academic outputs.
