At Altmetric, we’re keen to see our data used to make advances in scholarly communication. To that end, we offer an annual research grant of up to $2,000 USD for a project that makes new discoveries about how research is shared and discussed online.
Since 2016, the Altmetric Research Grant has funded research into:
- How to identify the research that will later make it into public policy documents
- Who adds scholarly citations to Wikipedia articles, and when and how they do it
- How research is shared in China and amongst the Chinese-speaking diaspora via WeChat “Official Accounts”
For the 2019 grant, we are particularly interested to receive proposals that focus on engagement with and the reach of humanities research, in all its forms.
Open to any academic or non-affiliated researchers, submissions for this year’s grant will be accepted through May 1, 2019.
