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.
