The role of Twitter in the life cycle of a scientific publication

Twitter is a micro-blogging social media platform for short messages that can have a long-term impact on how scientists create and publish ideas. We investigate the usefulness of twitter in the development and distribution of scientific knowledge.

luiy's curator insight, May 18, 2013 3:11 PM

Many scientists are making the move towards social media in order to accelerate  and amplify their scientific impact (Fausto et al. 2012; Fox 2012; Piwowar 2013). One in 40 scientists is active on Twitter (Priem et al. 2012a), 25,000 blog entries have been indexed on the Research Blogging platform, and 2 million scientists are using Mendeley, a reference sharing tool (Piwowar 2013). Here, we consider 140 how social media, and Twitter in particular, can influence the life cycle of scientific publication, from inception and collaboration on a spark of an idea to the communication of a finished product. Specifically, we evaluate and discuss the benefits of Twitter for (1) increasing scholarly connections and networks, (2) quickly developing ideas through novel collaborations and pre-review, and (3) amplifying the dissemination and discussion of scientific knowledge both within and beyond the ivory tower of academia.

 

 

The impact of scientific papers has traditionally been measured in terms of
numbers of citations (Neylon and Wu 2009). Tweeting can influence this impact metric. For example, articles published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research that were tweeted about frequently in the first three days following publication were 11 times more likely to be highly cited 17 to 29 months later than  less tweeted articles (Eysenbach 2011). In fact, top-cited articles could be predicted quite accurately from their early tweeting frequency (Eysenbach 2011). In a separate study of ~4600 scientific articles published in the preprint database  arXiv.org, Shuai et al. (2012) found that papers with more mentions on Twitter were also associated with more downloads and early citations of papers, although the causality of these relationships is unclear (Shuai et al. 2012).

How do researchers use social media and scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs)? | Redes sociais | Scoop.it
Social media is not only a way for authors and publishers to disseminate research findings, it’s also increasingly being used by researchers to discover and read scientific content.
To better understand how social media and scholarly collaboration networks (SCNs) are used within academia to support research activity, Springer Nature conducted a survey in February. This was in follow up to a Nature survey carried out in 2014.
The survey revealed researchers’ views on their professional use of social media and SCNs, to what extent it can help them in their work, and the role publishers and journals can play to support researchers with activity on these platforms.

Is ResearchGate a Facebook for Science?

Is ResearchGate a Facebook for Science? | Redes sociais | Scoop.it

A key aspect of ResearchGate is that it’s restricted to working scientists, a rule it enforces by requiring users to register via institutional e-mail addresses. Users’ citations and publications are the site’s bread-and-butter. You can request a PDF of a paper with a single click on the abstract found on an author's page. The site also tells you which users are looking at your papers, a capability Zeller says is "pretty phenomenal" for scientists to use as a networking tool.
