PeerJ On Social Media

Given that PeerJ PrePrints recently published “The role of Twitter in the life cycle of a scientific publication“(which has already received over 1/4 of its usage from Twitter) we thought it might be a good time to overview the ways you can stay up to date with PeerJ using various social media.

We blog (you are reading the blog…) at http://blog.peerj.com/ and the RSS feed for that content is at http://blog.peerj.com/rss

We tweet from several different accounts. Predominantly we tweet from @ThePeerJ, but we also have an account for Charlie the Monkey (@PeerJCharlie) and PeerJ PrePrints (@PeerJPrePrints). In addition, the co-founders are active tweeters in their own rights (@p_binfield and @jasonHoyt) and other staff members also tweet (though they can be excused for occasionally tweeting non-PeerJ items – @invisiblecomma, @ThaiJacqueline and @urg98).

We have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thePeerJ), a Google+ page (https://plus.google.com/110790984027519549760/posts) and a Linked In page (http://www.linkedin.com/company/peerj).

And, given that we feature beautiful images on our homepage, it made sense to start a Pinterest account too! (http://pinterest.com/thepeerj/)

If you do nothing else then you should follow @ThePeerJ on twitter – we put almost everything out on that channel. On article pages, you can share content by clicking the ‘share’ button in the top left of the page.
