This project investigates new approaches offered by Social Media to rethink and explore new ways to measure research outputs by comparing traditional metrics with Altmetrics (new metrics based on social media).

Thus, we aim to design, develop and evaluate a system prototype called ARIA "Altmetrics for Research Impact Actuation", to gather and compute altmetrics to measure research impact.
