These slides are from a talk I presented at Edinburgh Napier University's "Academics online: Building your research profile in the digital age” workshop on 2 May 2017.
My talk was about how academic reputation can be built and maintained using common social networking platforms (i.e. Twitter and LinkedIn) as well as other social media tools such as blogs and university researcher profiles. The talk discussed traditional "reputation measurement tools" such as bibliometric impact and h-indexes, as well as the role that “altmetrics” play in the building and evaluation of academic reputation.
This session was not about how to use social media in your academic life—it was about why you should use it!
