[cid:image001.png at 01D2CFD8.DC351E80]The DFG-funded project *metrics - Measuring The Reliability and perceptions of Indicators for interactions with sCientific productS launched its project website<metrics-project.net> today.

The website informs about project activities and outputs as well as news and events in the *metrics community. One of the central areas will be the Social Media Registry, a list of Social Media platforms, which are used for scientific communication. It will be investigated which area of scientific communication they support, which kind of interactions are possible and which impact metrics of these kind of interactions have.

About the project

The main objective of *metrics is to develop a deeper understanding of *metrics (aka altmetrics / social media metrics), in terms of their general significance and their perception amongst stakeholders. Key considerations will include the quality of *metrics' underlying data (in terms of validity and reliability), the historical context within which *metrics arose, as well as their ability to adequately assess scientific outputs against the background of disciplinary specificities. The project's findings will benefit *metrics users and will contribute to the greater openness and transparency of *metrics initiatives. The project started on 1 January 2017 and will end on 31 December 2018.
