We’re delighted to see Altmetric’s Founder Euan Adie named as one of the Uk’s Top 50 Data Leaders and Influencers, in a list released today by Information Age.
“The prestigious Data 50 list was whittled down from more than 200 nominations and shines a light on those transforming organisations, enhancing decision-making and driving business value through the use of data, as well as managing its proliferating growth.”
Euan is described as being “at the forefront of the alternative metrics movement in academic research, which is changing the way scientists get credit for their work and how funders and governments assess the value of the research they pay for.”
They add, “Altmetric, the company he founded, delivers data on hundreds of thousands of research articles and other outputs each day to help academics worldwide show the impact of their research. It does this by automatically pulling together and processing large amounts of data from policy makers, scholarly reference managers, newspapers and magazines and social media, then giving them smart ways to visualise and understand it.”
The full list of winners can be found here. The 50 winners will be celebrated by the industry’s top players at The Data 50 Awards on 25 February 25th in London, where they will also reveal the winners of ten special ‘Best in Class’ categories.
