/The Web of Science and its corresponding Journal Impact Factor are 
inadequate for an understanding of the impact of scholarly work from 
developing regions, argues /*Juan Pablo Alperin 
<http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/2014/03/10/altmetrics-for-developing-regions/#author>.*/ Alternative 
metrics offer a great opportunity to redirect incentive structures 
towards problems that contribute to development, or at least to local 
priorities. But the altmetrics community needs to actively engage with 
scholars from developing regions to ensure the new metrics do not 
continue to cater to well-known and well-established networks./
