You can increase the visibility of your research through Social Media. This can lead to further citations, which in turn, increases your research's visibility and credibility.
As our researchers will attest, Social Media is a great way to collaborate with your peers and build your professional networks. In our videos the researchers talk about these collaborations and how this led to undertaking further research around Australia and the World.
Social Media is a quick and easy way to get your message out there.
Who knows where that next collaboration will come from. Social Media can broaden your audience and connect your research with people you may not have known were interested in it.
