To what degree does anybody here have experience with the Altmetric API, and if it is greater than zero, then what is your experience?
Here in the Libraries I am at the very beginnings of an investigation to determine the "impact" of various journal articles. In this case, "impact" is multifaceted and includes things like citations counts as well as mentions in the social media. API access to the Altmetric database may be just the sort of thing I would find useful.
What do y'all think?
