Overview

Universities use social media to engage with research communities to improve the chance of being cited. We help researchers to improve their visibility, and hopefully, to increase their chances being cited. A few universities in Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan have adopted such service of 6 months to 12 months, to accelerate their chances to be seen online and to be cited within the first Cited Half-life by reaching out to the select communities of research

About 30% of the articles in High Impact Factor journals never get cited after 4 years and beyond. Most researchers in the US, UK and Australia have started to use social media to improve their online fingerprint of research

Program Objectives

  • Increase the research visibility to the select research communities
  • Encourage interdisciplinary collaboration with global researchers
  • Gather essential feedback about the research work

Scope of Work

2-day workshop of curation includes:
