Event description

Description

We are delighted to invite you to an afternoon of discussion and insights at the London School of Economics on Wednesday 14 June, exploring the impact and reach of academic blogging at LSE.

Please join us from 3pm for tea, coffee and refreshments before two panel discussions on research communication and the presentation of findings from our recent research project into the impact of academic blogs. This will be followed by an evening wine reception and networking. We are welcoming speakers from LSE, House of Commons Library, Institute for Government, Nine Dots Prize, the Financial Times, The Economist and more.



Full schedule:

15:00 15:30: Refreshments and registration

15:30 – 16:45: Academic Blogs as Bridges to the Media and Parliament brings together representatives from the Financial Times, House of Commons Library, Institute for Government and Nine Dots Prize to explore how LSE blog content is engaged with by the mainstream media, think tanks and government researchers and how these relationships can be strengthened. How do blogs fit alongside press releases, vlogs and paywalled journal articles, and what are the barriers that journalists and researchers face when engaging with academic research?

16:45 17:00: Tea break

17:00 18:00: Considering the Value of Blogs and Social Media to Research Communication and Impact brings together representatives from Altmetric, the UCL ‘Why we Post’ project, The Economist and Peer J to explore the importance of social media – including blogs, podcasts, data visualisations, infographics and video – for fostering collaboration and reaching wider audiences in academia and beyond. Discussion will also consider social media in the context of the impact agenda, how to facilitate public engagement and how to measure and quantify research communication efforts.

18:00 19:00: Wine Reception and Networking to be held on the top floor of the New Academic Building (NAB), Kingsway.
