  title={Altmetrics of "altmetrics" using Google Scholar, Twitter, Mendeley, Facebook, Google-plus, CiteULike, Blogs and Wiki},
  author={Saeed-Ul Hassan and Uzair Ahmed Gillani},
We measure the impact of "altmetrics" field by deploying altmetrics indicators using the data from Google Scholar, Twitter, Mendeley, Facebook, Google-plus, CiteULike, Blogs and Wiki during 2010- 2014. To capture the social impact of scientific publications, we propose an index called alt-index, analogues to h-index. Across the deployed indices, our results have shown high correlation among the indicators that capture social impact. While we observe medium Pearson's correlation (\r{ho}= .247…
