Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors

Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors | Knowledge management in SMEs | Scoop.it

Here’s some more evidence that curation is crucial for researchers, whether you choose to be a curator or you choose to follow curators.
According to Minocha and Petre (2012) from The Open University, UK (1), curation is useful for researchers and for developing research skills, as it involves:
- information management;
- curating content on the research topic of interest which appears on a variety of different media;
- chances of attracting interesting people to a researcher’s website;
- development of your "infotention", mindfulness, and concentration;
- self-empowerment, helping you to be seen and trusted as a “topic expert”.

 

Become a content curator in three steps:
1- Do it on a specific topic so that you are seen as a trusted source or expert on that topic;
2- Share only the best stuff;
3- Do it continuously so that you are continuously providing up-to-date content.

Like it or not, you must own your social media reputation

Like it or not, you must own your social media reputation | Knowledge management in SMEs | Scoop.it

With each passing day political parties and citizens, business leaders and employees, and brands and consumers, have an increasing array of media outlets through which to share and access personal information. As such, it’s more important than ever to own and manage your reputation before another person or institution defines it for you.

Welcome - The Data Journalism Handbook

Welcome - The Data Journalism Handbook | Knowledge management in SMEs | Scoop.it

Thanks to my colleague - Conrad Taylor - for signposting this.
Currently in Beta, The Data Journalism Handbook is an incredibly rich resource for anyone interested in finding information (and a story) from data.

 

What is data journalism? To quote from the authors:

"Perhaps it is the new possibilities that open up when you combine the traditional‘nose for news’ and ability to tell a compelling story, with the sheer scale and range of digital information now available."

 

But you don't need to be a professional journalist to be able to see the value in this handbook. There are tips and good practice here for anyone using the Interweb for research.

 

Whether you are an 'armchair auditor' checking on how government is spending your money, or a researcher looking for patterns of poor healthcare, or you're just interested in finding connections between hundreds of thousands of documents, as The Telegraph did in revealing the scandal of with MPs' expenses. You'll find some useful tips here, together with examples and case studies of stories (scandals even) that have surfaced as a result of knowing your rights to open data as a private citizen, where to find the data sources, and how to use and understand data. 

 

The authors are also behind the website at: http://datadrivenjournalism.net/

 

Value: 9/10
