"It’s that time of year again! Altmetric announce the lucky winner of their annual research grant!
Launched in 2016, the Altmetric Annual Research Grant awards up to £1,500 to support a project in the altmetrics space, with the aim of facilitating research that would not otherwise be possible.
This year’s prize has been awarded to Dr Evan Goldstein, Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Geological Sciences at the The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for his project titled, 'How do scholarly citations in Wikipedia appear?'.
Dr Goldstein’s project, scheduled to begin in July 2017, will explore the questions of ‘how’, ‘when’ and ‘why’ scholarly mentions appear on Wikipedia, with the aim of determining what proportion of Wikipedia mentions for a single journal are author-generated."
