Academic and professional social media
Create informative or multimedia content, article reviews, press releases, infographics, etc and share them on social media, help raise the profile of your research and position yourself as an expert in a particular subject.
Academic and professional social media enable you to disseminate your publications, obtain social impact statistics or indicators and interact with other experts. To optimize your activity on social media, we recommend:
- Including your author ID. Some social media sites let you import and export references to your articles and so get usage statistics.
- Defining your interests and fields of knowledge to get recommendations regarding documents, resources and information related to your chosen subjects.
- Taking part in groups, generating discussion and interacting with the other network members.
Remember to check the publishing policies of the journals where you have published your research, for example on the Sherpa/Romeo portal. Not all of them allow you to deposit and share articles on social media. View the ResearchGate case.
