What’s the Impact of Unboiling an Egg?

Since 2014, Alternative Metrics have made it easy to track mentions of published articles. Prizes, such as the Ig Nobel Prize awarded in September to chemists at UC Irvine and Flinders University, Adelaide, on unboiling an egg (published in ChemPubSoc Europe journal, ChemBioChem [1] in January 2015) indicate an impact beyond mere citations.
Find out the details of this new Altmetric statistic.
