Building an Online Profile Using Social Networking and Amplification Tools for Scientists”

2,064 views

Published on

Many of us nowadays invest significant amounts of time in sharing our activities and opinions with friends and family via social networking tools such as Facebook, Twitter or other related websites. However, despite the availability of many platforms for scientists to connect and share with their peers in the scientific community the majority do not make use of these tools, despite their promise and potential impact and influence on our careers. We are already being indexed and exposed on the internet via our publications, presentations and data and new “AltMetric scores” are being assigned to scientific publications as measures of popularity and, supposedly, of impact. We now have even more ways to contribute to science, to annotate and curate data, to “publish” in new ways, and many of these activities are as part of a growing crowdsourcing network. This presentation provides an overview of the various types of networking and collaborative sites available to scientists and ways to expose your scientific activities online. It will discuss the new world of AltMetrics that is in an explosive growth curve and will help you understand how to influence and leverage some of these new measures. Participating online, whether it be simply for career advancement or for wider exposure of your research, there are now a series of web applications that can provide a great opportunity to develop a scientific profile within the community.

Building an Online Profile Using Social Networking and Amplification Tools for Scientists”

  5. 5. My Hopes for Today • Encourage you in the “era of participation” • Provide an overview of some tools available • Share some stories, statistics and strategies • Encourage you to “share for the sake of science as well as for yourself” • OUTCOMES • You will claim an ORCiD • You will invest ~2 hours per month on your profile • You have a bigger “Impact” online….

  7. 7. Scientists measured by Impact
  8. 8. Scientists are Evaluated Based on “Statistics” •Publications – peer-reviewed and many others •Posters and presentations at conferences •Electronic theses and dissertations •Performances in film and audio •Research datasets •Scientific software •Other forms of research
  9. 9. How to Measure Impact
  10. 10. Who markets your science??? If not you, then who? •“It's not the job of researchers to become experts in public relations — that's why universities have press offices, says Matt Shipman, research communications lead at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. But he recommends scientists toot their own horns as well. ” • http://www.nature.com/news/kudos-promises-to-help-scientists-promote-their-papers-to-new-audiences-1.20346
  11. 11. Think about it… • 100s if not 1000s of hours of research behind a paper. How much work is the PUBLISHER going to do to make sure people find out about your article?? How do you find out about an article??? • Shouldn’t YOU and your CO-AUTHORS invest some time in getting it out to the network??? • A presentation given to a small room of people has a lifetime of “20-30 mins”. A presentation shared online for all to see lives a lot longer. An article shared in the network has a much wider audience.
  12. 12. Your Profile as a Scientist • If you are a career scientist – i.e. already published, active researcher, generator of data, early, mid- or late career there is lots to do! • If you are a junior scientist the benefits of investing time now will provide a strong foundation for your future! • So what do I do??

If nothing else, he says, build a LinkedIn profile as an online CV, claim and update an ORCID ID, and log peer-review activities on Publons.com. …a research paper is itself the end product of an extraordinary investment of time and energy. It takes thousands of hours of research, data analysis, writing and peer review, he says. “Shouldn't you put at least 10 to 20 hours of work into making sure that you can get the message out to relevant people?”
