Are Altmetrics Effective in Transdisciplinary Research Fields?: Altmetric Coverage of Outputs in Educational Research

Altmetrics in Educational Research

This paper analyses the coverage of altmetrics for heterogeneous scientific and extra-scientific outputs in a transdisciplinary research field. The transdisciplinary field of educational research is used as a case study to get first insight into how current altmetric tools cover the field on the levels of its general publication output, and on the level of research relevant journals. Additionally, an experimental approach analyses the Twitter mentions of a transdisciplinary research report.
