Altmetric in the News

Altmetric are thrilled to welcome Tania Marsh, Scholarly Communications Library at Athlone Institute of Technology to the Ambassador family.

Tania brings a wealth of experience with her in her role as Ambassador having worked with former Ambassador Jane Burns on a number of educational altmetric events. 

“I’m excited to be joining Altmetric’s Ambassador programme and spreading the word about altmetrics.” says Tania. “Having worked with Jane over the years I understand the need to educate people about the amazing things that altmetrics can do in relation to tracking and monitoring the conversations around research.”

“Athlone IT & Limerick IT are applying to become the next Technological University in Ireland and we just finished our 2 week review with the International Panel.” explains former Ambassador Jane. “ My new role as Director of Regional Networks of Technological Universities will still allow me in a different capacity to raise awareness about altmetrics which I’m pleased about.”

We’re sorry to see Jane leave the programme but Altmetric wishes the best of luck to Jane in her new role.

Launched in 2015, the Altmetric Ambassador Program is a community of over 200 researchers, librarians and publishers across over 50 countries worldwide helping to spread the word about altmetrics and Altmetric tools at their institutions and organizations.
