Benefits of promoting your research in academic social networks

February 16, 12-12:15Zoom

Ignoring social media today is like ignoring email in 1994. Academic social media increases the possibility of wider dissemination of research to draw the attention of the corresponding research community, as well as to let the right researchers read and cite it. We will demonstrate how the academic social media provides a direct route for sharing research with the peers and associated with a higher citation.
