Eugene Garfield is widely known as the “father” of the impact factor. He first suggested the concept of an impact factor in 1955, and he jointly created them in the early 1960s, along with Irving H. Sher. The use and value of impact factors is controversial for a number of reasons; however their importance is not in doubt, and they remain a key metric in journal publishing today.

We talked to Euan Adie, founder of Altmetric
We are excited to be partnering with Altmetric to enhance the article metrics currently available on Taylor & Francis Online and Cogent OA. Added to all journal articles published since January 2012, Altmetric data will offer users a more complete picture of how people are engaging with research articles from Taylor & Francis Group, whether via traditional or social media, blogs, or online reference managers. We spoke to Euan Adie, founder of Altmetric.com, to find out more about Altmetric and how he thinks the addition of these metrics will improve the user experience for authors, editors, and readers.
