The Impact of Social Media on the Dissemination of Research: Results of an Experiment

In September 2011 I returned to work after a year on maternity leave. Many things needed sorting out, not least my digital presence at my home institution, which had switched to a content management system that seamlessly linked to University College London’s open-access repository, “Discovery.” The idea was we should upload open-access versions of all our previously published research, and link to it from our home pages, to aid in dissemination. (...) - by Melissa Terras, Journal of Digital Humanities, Vol. 1, No. 3 Summer 2012
