  • What is Impact?• “the demonstrable contribution that excellent research makes to society and the economy” (RCUK)• What about personal impact?• “Continual publishing across journals, blogs and social media maximises impact by increasing the size of the „academic footprint‟ ” (LSE Impact blog)
  • What are social media?
  • Social media for researchers The “academic research cycle”
  • There is no “right way” but:• Identification of knowledge• Creation of knowledge – more effective collaboration – opportunities to forge new collaborations – drawing on expertise to help with research – receiving feedback as you go – raising the profile of your work more rapidly than conventional publishing• Quality assurance of knowledge – competitive funding – ethical approval – academic line-management – peer scrutiny at conferences – peer review – publication – post-publication review, citation• Dissemination of knowledge
  • Clay Shirky (2010):"Participants are different. To participate is to act asif your presence matters, as if, when you seesomething or hear something, your response is partof the event."
  • It‟s not informationoverload, it‟s filter failure
  • Criticisms of social media• Growth of technology – technodeterminism?• Privacy• Banality• Peripherality• Loss of an authoritative perspective• Work/life balance
  • What could possibly go wrong?• Opening the kimono?• Ethics?• Peer review?• The media?• And? Murphy‟s Law? despair.com
