AbstractSocial media based indicators or altmetrics have been under scrutiny for the last seven years. Their promise as alternative metrics for measuring scholarly impact (Priem, Piwowar, & Hemminger, 2012) is still far from becoming a reality (Torres-Salinas, Cabezas-Clavijo, & Jiménez-Contreras, 2013). Issues with regard to their meaning (Sud & Thelwall, 2014), potential use as alternative or complements to citation indicators (Bornmann, 2014; Costas, Zahedi, & Wouters, 2015a), data collection inconsistencies (Robinson-García, Torres-Salinas, Zahedi, & Costas, 2014) or diversity of sources (Thelwall, Haustein, Larivière, & Sugimoto, 2013) are still under development. In this regard, three lines of work can be observed in regard to altmetric studies: 1) the relation between citations and altmetric indicators (Costas et al., 2015a), 2) their meaning as impact indicators (i.e., Bornmann, 2014; Haustein, Bowman, & Costas, 2015), and, 3) coverage and diversity of social media sources (i.e., Haustein, 2016).
