SOCIAL MEDIA & YOUR RESEARCH
Getting your work published in a journal like the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (the Archives) or the Archives of Rehabilitation Research and Clinical Translation (ARRCT) is just the start. More than ever, it’s important for your work to be published and also disseminated and cited. Social media is a powerful tool you can use to get more eyes on your work.
According to a 2018 study in Nature Cell Biology, ResearchGate, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Academia.edu were the top five sites visited by scientists in a recent survey. 45,000 scientists around the world use Twitter, and that number is growing quickly. Join them and get the world to see your work.
ACRM, the Archives, and ARRCT are ideally positioned to assist you. Post about your work (tweet, Facebook or LinkedIn post, etc.) and tag us. We will share your post to our thousands of followers. Check out our large social media network and be sure to follow the journals on our various channels and platforms.
Some tips for posting
- The Archives and ARRCT make it easy to post your paper right from the website. Go to your article and underneath the authors on the right are several small icons for Mendeley, Facebook, Twitter, email, and more. On ScienceDirect you can click Share on the center top of the article page. It helps if you are already logged in to the account to which you’ll share your article.
- You can create your own post. If you do, you may want to reduce that lengthy article URL to something more manageable. Anyone can use bitly.com for that.
- #Hashtags and @ symbols serve different purposes. @ArchivesPMR and @archivesoa are the twitter handles for our journals. #Hashtags can help your tweets and posts appear when others search by #hashtag (e.g. #stroke, #MS, #rehabilitation).
- A graphic or video gets you more looks and is an effective way to amplify your research within the confines of brief posts.
- The American Society of Microbiology put together a great video to help scientists with social media posting.
- Editage has a great video on Why Researchers Should Use Social Media
And remember, using social media to promote your research can lead you to new career opportunities, new collaborators, and expose you to more research. A growing body of evidence suggests it will lead your work to be cited more often.
