Abstract:Most previous studies of Altmetrics focused on the correlation between alt-metric scores and citation scores of publications. In this study, we proposed Altmetrics as a measure of the popularity of scientific research. Based on 15,321 articles in Physics published in 2008-2013 and the regression analysis on the dataset, we concluded that journal impact factor, average citation impact of the authors, and the number of citations are positively associated with a paper's popularity in social media, whereas publication year and authors' average academic age had negative correlation with its altmetric score.
