Socializing Scholarly Communication: Opening Up Scholarship from Research to Publication LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The science blogosphere has in the last decade grown, diversified and become more professional in many aspects. Popular science communication and science outreach are a growing focus of science blogging and scientists’ use of social media. Have blogs, or newer forms of social media, been successful in opening up scholarship and promoting scholarly discourse? In this panel, we will ask and address questions related to the current and future prospects, pros and cons of a scholarly approach to social media, or one that opens up scholarship from research to publication. We will also be addressing how newer forms of social media complement (or replace) some of the functions of blogs and may serve as an outlet for researchers to speak about research in progress with other researchers, writers and lay readers.
