This explorative case study uses ImpactStory and Webometric Analyst to download altmetric indicators for publications of institutes of the multidisciplinary Leibniz Association. The analysis shows that Mendeley is most heavily used across disciplines, that further social media is preferred by different disciplines, and that altmetrics can complement traditional measures of research impact (e.g., citation counts) where data is sparse. Lessons learned of altmetrics studies which may assist others when faced with similar questions regarding usefulness of altmetrics for research evaluation are also presented.
