Using social media to expose your research to a larger audience

June 7, 2017

Social media can be an excellent venue for exposing your research to a broader audience. To this end, Amy Mollett, Cheryl Brumley, Chris Gilson, and Sierra Williams provide ten tips for using social media to put your research in front of a larger audience. These tips include developing a system that works social and digital media efforts into your research process, providing links to open-access versions of your research, and adding visuals or infographics to your research to make it easier for your audience to quickly understand your work. The authors conclude by noting that, while social media can be an invaluable venue, it comes with its own risks and may not be the best option for everyone. Times Higher Education
