Did you know APECS has an active Twitter and Facebook following? As part of International Polar Week, taking place next month from 21 - 29 March 2015, the newly formed APECS Social Media committee is planning several activities to grow our online community of polar researchers. As part of these efforts, we are calling for early career scientists who would like to share their projects to get involved.
How can you get involved?
- Follow APECS on Facebook and Twitter (@Polar_Research).
- Volunteer to write a short blog on your research and what it's like being a polar scientist for us to feature on the website.
- Tweet about your polar week activities using hash tag #PolarWeek.
Sharing your research via Twitter and Facebook is a great way to expand the reach of your work and grow your connections with fellow researchers. By engaging in social media, not only will you expand your professional network, but you will help to promote (Ant)Arctic literacy in the general public and help to recruit the next generation of polar scientists.
We would love to feature early career scientists from a wide range of research disciplines throughout the week, so don't hesitate to get in touch and make the most of this opportunity!
