Welcome to my blog area for all things digital and scholarly related! 

Whether PhD, post-doc or established researcher, we all want to tell the world about what we are doing. If not, we fail to get external recognition, validity and critique on and for our work. Traditional, often dyadic forms of communication (i.e. academic journals / conferences) are the major routes for dissemination; however technology is simply changing the way we ‘get our research out there’ and develop our own academic profile/brand/presence. Becoming a digital researcher, and working more in the cloud is increasingly important for all the above; particularly in the social sciences.
