University of Malaya (2015)
  • Nader Ale Ebrahim
Scholarly blogs and Microblogs such as Twitter are increasingly attracting attention as new channels of science communication. Blogs and microblogging services like Twitter get your research seen by more non-academics than your peer reviewed papers will ever be. The importance of this is not to be dismissed. Blogs and microblogs are vital tools for academics to publicly communicate about research developments and findings. Academics can also gain feedback from other peers, as well as expand their networks and enhance research visibility. This presentation will provide guidelines on blogs and microblogs as tools for increasing the article visibility and citations. Increased visibility online helps your offline recognition.
