Social media: A guide for researchers

Social media - A guide for researchers While it’s not strictly botany, since the purpose of this blog is to promote research in plant science through the use of social media, it seems appropriate for me to announce the publication of a new report by the Research Information Network:

Social media: A guide for researchers

Whether or not you’re coming to the Digital Researcher meeting on Monday (in person or participating online), Social media: A guide for researchers is for you. More importantly, since you’re already reading this online, why not download a copy and give it to someone you work with who hasn’t figured out what they’re missing yet.

Disclosure: I am one of the authors :-)

My thanks to everyone who has contributed to this report and helped with publication.
