Proving your research project’s societal relevance is becoming increasingly important when applying for research funding, assessment and job applications. One way of doing this is by making an overview with the University Library’s Altmetric Explorer tool. The tool creates an inventory of policy documents, social and news media in which your research has been mentioned and how often this has occurred; this is known as ‘public attention’ for your research project.
Read here how to make an overview.
