Using readership-based metrics we can estimate impact on the basis of the consumption of scientific content by a population of readers.
ReaderMeter adapts two popular impact metrics for authors (the H-Index  and the G-Index ) and redefines them using bookmarks instead of citations as an HR-Index and a GR-Index respectively: hover over the index values for an explanation of their meaning. Analysing readership data can help discover areas of real-time impact that may not be visible to traditional citation-based measurements [3-5]. Readership data is made available via the Mendeley API.
