Google yourself!

30th June 2013
I have been doing a lot of work in the last couple of years with early career researchers. Of the 40+ researchers that I have worked with in the last six months, I would say that about 1 in 10 was using the affordances provided by online technology effectively; that is, to promote their academic profile, to connect with other academic and industry researchers and to…
