In this workshop, you will learn how to use web-based approaches and social media to accelerate the dissemination and impact of your research findings.
Today, researchers have to make their publications stand out from the stack of nearly 800,000 science and engineering manuscripts that are published each year.
The good news is that there have never been more tools available that allow scientists to communicate their research proactively. Digital and social media make it easier for scientists to break out of the traditional science news cycle and track their impact to advance their careers.
In this workshop, we will explore a range of tools to help you to share your research outputs more broadly via digital and social media, e.g., scientific articles, data, software code, presentations, images, video, infographics.
We will introduce web-based approaches that help you to stay abreast of events and news related to your research and to better understand your audience and speak their language, and we will look at citation guidelines of online and social media content.
