Back in August, we were talking about the new metric Twitter had given birth to: the Kardashian index. Meant as a joke, to criticize or draw attention to scientists blabbering (and seriously discussing!) on the short-form social network. Some weeks later, a survey and an article came out on the Nature website: “Online colla...
Launched in 2009, Mendeley's research collaboration platform now connects the scholarly workflows of two million researchers in the sciences and humanities worldwide. To celebrate, we are releasing the Global Research Report: The first-ever analysis of scholarly reading and studying activity in relation to economic indicators and research productivity.
Vous êtes enseignant-chercheur, chercheur, doctorant, professionnel de l’information. Vous avez déjà entendu parler d’Academia ou ResearchGate, voire vous les utilisez déjà pour trouver ou partager de l’information ?
When I was doing my PhD some 3 years ago, the only collaborative tool we used was Google Docs. Today there are many amazing new websites and tools for research. A recent review covered the emerging tools “that are changing (or have the potential of changing) the way researchers do and communicate their work." From the ability of cloud-based tools to connect researchers,...

Une étude américaine révèle que les étudiants qui utilisent Twitter dans le cadre de leurs cours se montrent plus intéressés en classe et obtiennent de meilleures notes que les autres.
Une amélioration au bout de 6 mois d'utilisation
Dans le cadre de cette étude, Christina Greenhow, enseignante à l'université, a demandé à ses étudiants d'utiliser activement Twitter pendant 6 mois, notamment pour échanger avec leurs camarades de classe ou poser des questions à leurs professeurs via le réseau social.

Les outils numériques à disposition des chercheurs : des outils de veille aux outils d'optimisation du travail en équipe, en passant par les outils de gestion bibliographique et les plateformes de partage de contenus.
The thinking of academic community is moving fast in the direction that we envision. We expect that, in not too distant future, researchers will post their papers in a web-repository like arxiv.org, write a blog post or two describing it in simple language, and then tweet a small link to those familiar with his work. Also, they will continue to write their daily or weekly thoughts in a blog, so that the paper ‘published’ in arxiv.org will be more like stringing together of many blog posts than all new discoveries. We have not seen any academic researcher go that far yet (except one or two), but a post in Rafael Irizarry’s blog shows that people are starting to think that way.
As social media usage becomes a common feature at conferences, anxieties about authority, control, attribution, originality and privacy are likely to haunt the theory and practice of scholarly social media use for some time to come. But embracing openness and transparency, through Twitter or blogging, can coexist with the existing expectations for academic rigor, ethics and civil behaviour.
Academics who are comfortable with and enthusiastic about social media need to communicate that live-tweeting at conferences is not a threat to scholarly activity but the contrary: an ally.
