Methods: The study population consists of the profiles of the faculty members from HUMS, Hamedan, Iran on ResearchGate in 2021. For Altmetrics study, first their profiles were visited. Their data were then extracted which included Research items, Total Research Interest, Questions, Answers, Followers, Followings, Reads, Recommendations, RG Score, Citations, and h-index. Their total citations were then extracted from the Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar databases. Finally, the collected data were analyzed in SPSS v. 25 software, using Kolmogorov–Smirnov test and Spearman correlation test.
Results: All faculty members of HUMS had a profile in ResearchGate and 78.31% had joined ResearchGate. The statistical analysis showed a significant positive correlation between RG score and citations on ResearchGate, Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar.
