New research shows that networking is the most effective way to communicate innovative research, so why not consider the blog as a networking tool? Last Thursday a GSMZ workshop looked at the potential of blogs not only for tracking and publicising research but for keeping in touch with a community of bloggers and readers interested in the same thing, whether it be a specific research topic or the process of researching in itself. Have a look at some of these blogs by students and academics to see how the blog can communicate ideas whether it's used as a solitary pursuit or a team effort.
