The research community is evolving. The way in which we quantify legitimate research activities, judge research output, communicate our findings, share ideas and collaborate has changed in recent years. This seminar will explore how the evolution of open access policies, research metrics, peer review, crowdfunding and social media are changing the landscape of academic research. We'll look at how researchers are now more empowered than ever to promote their own work, drive opinion in their respective disciplines, and connect to funders and collaborators at unprecedented levels. As part of this seminar David will look at which platforms are trending in these areas, and provide links to some useful resources.
