Published on

In this workshop (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), 19 December 2018) I summarised the benefits which can be gained from use of social media (specially blogs, Twitter and other socialnetwork sites) to support research activities, and I provided examples of these innovative emerging resources as tools for scientific communicatio, as well as discussed their implications for digital scholarship. Structure of the lecture: Introduction, Altmetrics, Open science, Active listening, Blogging, Microblogging, Networking, Sharing, The ten commandments, References To deepen, Conclusions.
