A special social media demonstration for scientists and researchers will be held today in the Blue Theater(booth 2108). From 10:30 to 11:00 a.m., NACE International’s Social Media Specialist, Janna Schulze, will be showing authors how to quickly and effectively promote their work through the use of tools available through CORROSION journal’s partner Kudos.
Attendees will learn how to build a Kudos author profile, write a plain language description of their research, and collaborate with the wider scientific community through social media. The tools explored will help authors reach a wider audience, increasing the impact of their work. The demonstration will include an overview of the article metrics available, including views, citations, and Altmetric scores,and ways an author can track the performance of their efforts.
This session is geared towards scientists and researchers who publish their work in CORROSION journal and other scientific publications.
