Wetenschappers en Social Media

2012 Feb 10

 

We hebben als communicatieprofessionals bij een grote universiteit inmiddels uitvoerig kennis gemaakt met diverse vormen van sociale media, de snelheid ervan, de mogelijke impact die het kan hebben, de voordelen maar ook de mindere aspecten. Bij de TU Delft geven we cursussen Twitteren en workshops bloggen aan medewerkers, gaan we in discussie met studenten op onze Facebook fanpage en faciliteren we de interactie tussen onze alumni op LinkedIn.

Als communicatieprofessionals in het umfeld van de wetenschap zien we de aanwezigheid van wetenschappers in die delende wereld onafwendbaar toenemen. Maar we zien ook de terughoudendheid, de twijfel en de angst. ‘Maar ik wil helemaal niet op Twitter’, roept  de nietsvermoedende wetenschapper regelmatig uit. Dat hoeft ook niet, ‘2.0’ houdt veel meer in dan alleen microbloggen. In deze blog een niet-uitputtend overzicht van waar kansen liggen.

Open Science
‘Open Science is een filosofie waarbij data, onderzoek en resultaten vrij toegankelijk zijn voor iedereen zonder copyright, patenten of andere controlemechanismen’ (Marjolein Pijnappels, zie onder). Online peer review, open access, open data, open courseware, betere verspreiding van data, tools en methodes (www.openscience.org bijvoorbeeld biedt toegang tot gratis open source software in diverse onderzoeksvelden) zijn allemaal ’2.0-gerelateerde termen die de komende tijd veel aan invloed zullen gaan winnen. Het betrekken van het publiek bij onderzoek met citizen science is ook een succesvol voorbeeld van de inzet van social media in wetenschappelijk onderzoek.

Michael Nielsen is een vooraanstaand wetenschapper op het gebied van quantum computers. In april 2006 hield hij een pleidooi voor open science op TEDxWaterloo. Michael Nielsen verliet de academische wereld om een boek te schrijven over open science en de manier waarop online tools de manier waarop wetenschappelijke ontdekkingen gedaan gaan worden zullen veranderen.

 
Publiekscommunicatie
De wetenschappelijke subsidiestroom bestaat steeds meer uit individuele subsidies, van de VENI-VIDI-VICI-subsidies van NWO tot Europese ERC Personal Grants. Toekenning is vooral afhankelijk van een indrukwekkende lijst met publicaties, maar daarnaast speelt ‘maatschappelijke relevantie’ een rol(letje).  De KNAW  heeft een voorstel voor de criteria en de indicatoren voor de kwaliteitsbeoordeling van wetenschappelijke werk in de ontwerpende en construerende wetenschappen geformuleerd en een  ‘kwaliteitsindicatorenkaart voor de technische wetenschappen‘ ontwikkeld .

Onder de rubriek ‘maatschappelijke relevantie’ wordt ook ‘verspreiding van kennis’ genoemd. Concreet:  ‘Activiteiten gericht op popularisering wetenschap, onderwijs en bijdragen aan het publieke debat’ en ‘Professionele publicaties en voordrachten, niet wetenschappelijke publicaties, tentoonstelling etc. over onderzoeksresultaten’. Publiekscommunicatie is dus belangrijk, en een van de manieren om je publiek te bereiken is via online media als een blog, en/of via Twitter.

Persoonlijke profilering
Iedere wetenschapper (eigenlijk iedere werknemer in het algemeen) doet  iets aan ‘persoonlijke profilering’ om zijn of haar carrière vooruit te helpen. Dat wil niet zeggen dat iedereen daar heel bewust mee bezig is, vaak gebeurt het als bijverschijnsel van de drang om resultaten met anderen te delen. Als de wetenschapper zich hier echter van bewust is, zal de profilering een stuk doeltreffender kunnen zijn. Dat betekent dus bijvoorbeeld het bijhouden van je LinkedIn profiel, lezingen geven (en je presentatie op SlideShare zetten), bloggen (naast publiceren in vakbladen), twitteren, actief zijn op (wetenschappelijke) discussiefora en plaatsen van relevante inhoud op Wikipedia. Laat vervolgens die meerwaarde ook maar zien aan je (toekomstige) werkgever of subsidieverstrekker.

Doelgroepen bereiken
Dat ene gemeenteraadslid, die ene politicus of die ene (wetenschaps)journalist is tegenwoordig via Twitter veel makkelijker te bereiken met jouw boodschap dan via de gangbare kanalen van bellen, mailen en afspraken maken. Dat kan natuurlijk allemaal in tweede instantie, maar voor het trekken van de aandacht en een eerste quasinonchalant contact is Twitter wel een prachtig middel.

Wetenschappers en sociale media
Het begrip ‘Social Media‘ omvat vele platforms, technieken en manieren van communiceren. Allemaal toepasbaar voor bepaalde specifieke doelen en doelgroepen. Inzetbaar voor het onderzoek zelf, voor het verbreden van je netwerk, het delen van resultaten met een specifiek of juist een heel breed publiek, en in het algemeen voor het werken aan je wetenschappelijke carrière. Daarnaast kan het ook gewoon leuk zijn – vinden wij als communicatieprofessionals dan. In ieder geval de moeite waard om je ‘s in te verdiepen en/of je te laten adviseren.

Als je het allemaal wilt horen van een wetenschapper zelf, lees dan deze blog ‘Wetenschap in 140 tekens’ van Peter Kerkhof (toegegeven, hij is wel communicatiewetenschapper…).

In het white paper ‘Wakker worden! Tijd voor Open Science’, beschrijft Marjolein Pijnappels (Studio Lakmoes) hoe social media het wetenschappelijk proces zouden kunnen veranderen.

First of all I would like to say terrific blog!
I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind
in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it
just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog
and was wondering what all is required to
get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost
a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of
completely unique content I've either created
myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it
is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd definitely
appreciate it.
