BEYOND THE SCIENTIFIC ARTICLE-MAKING YOUR RESEARCH SOCIAL: SOCIAL MEDIA AS TOOLS FOR SCIENCE COMMUNICATION At: Training of Trainers workshop on CIARD, By Nadia Manning-Thomas (CGIAR Communications and Knowledge team) Wednesday 5 th October 2011, Amman, Jordan)
The ways we currently store and share knowledge…
Communication of research findings in peer-reviewed journals is the standard by which scientists and their findings are evaluated by the scientific community
Publication in high-impact journals ensures that research findings are accessible to the scientific community for use in related studies and translates into agricultural improvement throughout the region and around the world.
To collaborate better and ‘make the PIGs fly’ means:
Making our research more social!
Being social means:
The term Social refers to a characteristic of living organisms (humans in particular, though biologists also apply the term to populations of other animals). It always refers to the interaction of organisms with other organisms and to their collective co-existence, irrespective of whether they are aware of it or not, and irrespective of whether the interaction is voluntary or involuntary .
A blog (or " web log ") is a type of website with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video.
Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.
Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries.
A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages , and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art ( Art blog ), photographs ( photoblog ), videos ( Video blogging ), music ( MP3 blog ), and audio ( podcasting ).

A feed is a regularly updated summary (“syndication”) of contents – blog entries, headlines, publications, multimedia – in the form of metadata about the source and the contents. It includes links to the full versions of those contents at their original location.
Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place.
