Social Networking Tools for Scientists and Building an Online Profile

  3. 3. Office of Research and Development 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 community/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….
  4. 4. Office of Research and Development You Will Choose… Self-marketing vs. Narcissism http://research-acumen.eu/wp-content/uploads/Users-narcissism-and-control.pdf

  6. 6. Office of Research and Development 5 Scientists are Constantly Evaluated Based on “Statistics” •Research datasets •Scientific software •Publications – peer-reviewed and many others •Posters and presentations at conferences •Electronic theses and dissertations •Performances in film and audio •Other forms of research
  7. 7. Office of Research and Development 6 Today, Scientists Can Easily Share Their Work… • Once a scientific work(s) is public... • Share • Distribute • Enhance my connection network • “Advertise and market”
  8. 8. Office of Research and Development Who markets your work??? 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
  9. 9. Office of Research and Development 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.
