Article-Level Metrics track the impact of a scholarly paper through citations, usage stats and social web activity. They not only add new metrics to the traditionally used citation metrics, but more importantly focus on the individual research output rather than aggregate metrics such as those based on a particular journal. The Public Library of Science started Article-Level Metrics in 2009 and the presentation will describe some practical use cases for publishers.
