Academia.edu, one of the most successful commercial platforms in this area, claims 33 million people have signed up their service, sharing 10 million uploaded papers on a site which enjoys 36 million unique visitors a month.
How can researchers, particularly those at the beginning of their academic careers, make effective use of academic social networking sites? What is the difference between sharing papers on a commercial platform such as Academia.edu, and open access publication and dissemination through institutional repositories or non-commercial services? What are the benefits and pitfalls of using academic social networks?
Danny Kingsley from the University's Office of Scholarly Communication will lead a discussion on these questions and more.
