  15. “COVID-19 will be remembered for many things, including the pandemic that changed science communication. Much of the effect was positive. Outstanding epidemiologists, virologists, and public health experts became household names as they talked about the pandemic through mainstream media and social platforms. “ Science 16 Apr 2021: Vol. 372, Issue 6539, pp. 217 DOI: 10.1126/science.abi9363
  16. Altmetrics
  17. • Authors should be able to see the attention that their articles are receiving in real-time, and what people are saying about their work. • Researchers should be able to see which recent research their peers think is interesting. • Publishers should be able to show authors, readers and their own internal teams the conversations surrounding their content.
  19. Why are many researchers beginning to embrace altmetrics? • Track the dissemination of research beyond academia • Show the attention, reception, and response to a published work prior to it being cited • Can be applied to non-traditional research outputs like data- sets and blog posts • Show research impact in real-time — scholars and journals don’t have to wait for their score to be released, like in the Journal Citation Reports Source: Enter Alternative Metrics: Indicators that capture the value of research and richness of scholarly discourse

  83. “Social media provides more than just a channel for disseminating personal brand content: it provides the content itself. In fact, it is possible to develop a social media presence without expressing a single original idea, simply by re-posting content created by others. This means that, with relatively minimal effort, users can use social media platforms to reinvent themselves.” Oestreicher-Singer G., Geva H. and Saar-Tsechansky M. (2019, April 29).
