Advance yourself and your science: A free ACS Publications Webinar

Join us today, Thursday April 21, 2016 at 11am EST for the ACS Publications webinar titled Raising the Visibility of Your Research. If you are interested in this topic but unavailable to watch the webinar live, then please register and you will have access to the link to view it at your leisure.

Webinar hashtag is #ACSVisibleSci on Twitter

As a researcher, you need to wear many hats. Not only do you need to know how to effectively carry out experiments and write a compelling research paper, you also need to learn how to market your research so the right people are aware of your contributions to the field. This presentation will discuss ways in which the other “99%” of researchers can raise the visibility of their research. These are tips for every researcher and will provide suggestions on how to use multimedia and social media to promote their work, even if it never makes headlines on CNN.
In this webinar you’ll learn: 
  • How to effectively communicate your research to a broad audience 
  • How to leverage social media networks to broadcast your research 
  • How to utilize multimedia, such as ACS Liveslides, to supplement your research paper
