The 6:AM Altmetrics Conference returned for a 6th year, this time to the beautiful University of Stirling in Scotland on the 9th and 10th of October 2019.
Thank you to all who attended and all who sponsored this year’s event.

The theme for the conference was ‘Bridging Worlds’, with a focus on connecting communities, cultures and topics that stretch beyond altmetrics alone.

Delegates from across the scholarly ecosystem were invited to come together to explore ideas, hear practical case studies and participate in engaging discussions on altmetrics, scholarly communication, research impact, networks and collaboration, data science and research policy.

The scholarly landscape is changing rapidly, and there has never been a more critical time to discuss these issues and find a way to make a difference for the benefit of our shared society.

 The majority of the 6:AM conference sessions were live streamed and recorded.
