Updated March 10, 2019 14:21:29 Academics are increasingly focusing their academic research efforts on topics that can have big implications for the future of research, according to new research.
Key points:The research is published in the journal Social Science Research Methods (SSRM).
It is based on interviews with over 10,000 academics and is one of the largest academic research databases available.
The findings suggest that academics have more opportunities to engage in academic research when they are in the front line of academic life.
Key areas of concern include:Social sciences academics are increasingly looking to engage with the wider academic community through a variety of social media platforms.
“When you talk to people in the field, it’s a very easy way to get their attention and they’re not in a position to be critical or critical of their colleagues,” Professor John-Paul Johnson from the University of Western Australia’s School of Social Sciences said.
“In terms of the research that you do, that’s not always the case.”‘
It’s all about engagement’Social science research is about engaging people and sharing ideas across disciplines.
“You have to think about how to be open and listen, and if you’re not open and listening, that creates problems,” Professor Johnson said.
Prof Johnson said academic research was more collaborative when academics were engaged in conversations with the broader academic community.
“They have a lot of opportunities to collaborate and share ideas, and that can create a lot more opportunity for the research community to really engage with each other and to really have a really fruitful dialogue about ideas,” he said.
The research found that academics in the social sciences are increasingly using social media to promote research.
“Social media is becoming a very important way to reach out to people, because it can be really easy to do the wrong thing when you don’t think through all the potential consequences of what you’re doing,” Professor Paul Johnson said (ABC News: David Williams)”When I talk to social scientists, I’m constantly being told that they’re great people, but there are a lot who they don’t know, and they should be looking at how to do more of that.”
The study, titled “Academics have more opportunity to engage” is published today in the Journal of Social Science and Management.
Professor Johnson said there were many factors that made social science research so collaborative, but the biggest challenge was the lack of open communication.
“I think a lot is a combination of people not being open and honest, but also a lot being very reactive and not really being open or honest enough, because they’re concerned about what they are doing,” he noted.
“And they’re also concerned about being seen as not being honest, so it’s really difficult to get the research done.”
Prof Johnson’s study also found that social media has created opportunities for academics to engage.
“It’s not just about doing research,” he explained.
“Sometimes when you’re at work and you’re looking at what you are doing, and you think ‘wow, that was really cool’ you might just click on a link that someone else has made and you get a lot out of it.”
If you have that opportunity to be able to be with other people, you’re more likely to do that.
“Academically speaking, that means that we are really talking about how we are doing research in the context of the social environment and how we interact with people, so you might be talking about a project that you’ve been working on, and somebody has shared that project with you and you’ve done a few experiments and that has created some really interesting interactions.”‘
I’m trying to think of how to take my research to the next level’In his book The New Academic, social scientist John-Kathryn Lohman said social media had been an important tool for researchers in the past, but that its value was waning.
“We were used to people telling us how to conduct research, what to study, how to interpret data,” he told RN.
“But now we have this huge social network, and I’m trying so hard to think how I can take my work to the Next Level.”
Social media has allowed researchers to reach a larger audience than ever before.
“As a result, it allows people to engage, it enables people to share information, and it allows for conversations to happen on a global scale,” Professor Lohmann said.
Professor Lohm said he was not surprised by the findings, as he had been a part of social-media communities before.
However, he noted the social media culture of the past did not always support openness and transparency.
“A lot of times you don.s come across people who are very good at hiding their identity and are not willing to give us their information.”
That’s a lot to ask from a lot, and a lot that’s difficult for us to do.
