New ways of disseminating research findings

Researchers can disseminate ideas to a much wider audience and can present ideas in early stages to gather feedback. Researchers are in more danger of not being heard than of being ‘scooped’. Combining tweeting with blogging can maximise impact. However it is not sufficient to merely post when there is something to disseminate – it requires regular engagement to build up an audience > re-posting and commenting on others work.

Why blog?

Why tweet?
