If you’re involved in science twitter at all, you may have noticed the #AAASmtg buzz last week. The American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting, with the theme of Science Transcending Boundaries, was held in Washington, DC from February 14–17, 2019. While I was not in attendance, I followed the impressive resources that were shared online through the #AAASmtg hashtag. I’ve highlighted some below:
- (Guide) Recommended Practices for Science Communication with Policymakers
- (Talk, by Karl Broman) Collaborating reproducibly
- (Article) Twitter bots play disproportionate role spreading misinformation
- (Thread) This twitter thread from the “Science Outreach Online” panel, which led me to #5
- (Paper) An Introduction to Social Media for Scientists
Bonus: check out this living resource document from a session titled “A Shared Vision: Overcoming Barriers for Scientists to Communicate and Engage.”
Social media allows meeting organizers and speakers to impact more than just the physical attendees — and I’m so very grateful for it.
