Social media and research workflowCIBER, University College London, Emerald Group Publishing Ltd, February 23, 2011.As Academic Impressions summarizes this report, “A new survey shows that social scientists, humanists, and biologists — many of them frustrated by traditional publishing — are increasingly using Facebook and Twitter to share research.” The report states, “Researchers are using social media tools to support every phase of the research lifecycle: from identifying research opportunities to disseminating findings at the end. They may not be the same tools, and they are certainly not the same researchers, but social media are most definitely making an impact on scholarly workflow.”
