Abstract (Document Summary)

Two similar conclusions -- "Altmetrics can supplement but not substitute for citations" and "Altmetrics should not substitute, but can complement citation data" -- were representative of many presented by researchers at the Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) conference in Zadar, Croatia, held Jun 16, 2014-Jun 20, 2014. The first of these conclusions was drawn by Christian Schloegl, from the University of Graz, in his presentation, "Are Downloads and Readership Data a Substitute for Citations? The Case of a Scholarly Journal". The second conclusion, by Isabella Peters (from Leibniz Information Centre for Economics) and Alexandra Jobmann (from IPN), was presented as a part of "Altmetrics for Large, Multidisciplinary Research Groups: A Case Study of the Leibniz Association". LIDA featured five invited speakers, four workshops, 34 papers, a poster session, and a Ph.D. forum.
