This project, conducted by Prof Rodrigo Costas and his team at CWTS, Leiden University, involves the development of social media landscapes for Africa, by following an approach which has recently been highlighted as novel and relevant in the Impact Blog of the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science. This recognition further reinforces a previous assessment of their approach, and of their analysis of hashtags in altmeric data, as relevant research, in the blog. Rodrigo Costas’s presentation on this project also drew sufficient attention to be discussed on the altmetrics conference website.
