Social Media in Academia : Networked Scholars Paperback / softback



Social media and online social networks are expected to transform academia and the scholarly process.

However, intense emotions permeate scholars' online practices and an increasing number of academics are finding themselves in trouble in networked spaces.

In reality, the evidence describing scholars' experiences in online social networks and social media is fragmented.

As a result, the ways that social media are used and experienced by scholars are not well understood.

Social Media in Academia examines the day-to-day realities of social media and online networks for scholarship and illuminates the opportunities, tensions, conflicts, and inequities that exist in these spaces.

The book concludes with suggestions for institutions, individual scholars, and doctoral students regarding online participation, social media, networked practice, and public scholarship.
