Science dissemination 2.0: Social media for researchers


Published on

In this workshop (Master in Translational Medicine-MSc, University of Barcelona's Faculty of Medicine-Hospital Clínic, 14 March 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 communication related to translational medicine, as well as discussed their implications for digital scholarship. Structure of the lecture: Introduction, Altmetrics, Active listening, Blogging, Microblogging, Networking, Sharing, Health 2.0, Resources, The ten commandments, References To deepen, Conclusions

I hope I’ll use it to describe or explain (mainly to myself) the scientific issues I'm thinking about: - what experimentswe’ve done - what the resultswere if they worked (or possible explanations for why they didn’t work) - what experiments I think we might do or should do when time and resources permit.” Rosemarie (‘Rosie’) Redfield
