Dear Colleagues,

I wanted to share the news that Dr. Lauren Cadwallader, Open Access Research Advisor in the Office of Scholarly Communication at Cambridge University Library has been awarded the first annual Altmetric Research Grant.

Dr. Cadwallader’s proposal, “Papers, policy documents and patterns of attention: is it possible to identify which papers make it into policy by tracking their altmetric attention?” was selected by an expert panel from among 29 high-quality applications submitted by researchers worldwide.

Launched in April 2016, the Altmetric Research Grant was developed with the aim of supporting research in the field of Altmetric or research metrics to help advance their development and application to academic workflows.

More information on the grant can be found here: and the full announcement is available here:

Work on the project is expected to start this week and all results from the research will be made openly available. 

Kind regards,
Cat Williams
