Tracking Open Access research: Dr. Ashley Casey

Ashley reportedly uses altmetrics tools to track the attention for his articles from the point of publication onwards. This may include periods where the article is made free- to-access for a short period before being put behind a paywall. Ashley says he finds altmetrics data useful to help identify and prove the value of immediate open access publishing – the more available something is, the more likely it is to get shared and discussed, which is becoming increasingly important.
