Online social media has affected the journals market profoundly, as users place a premium on active engagement with the scholarly community.
Journal content is not limited to text; it now includes video, podcasts, images, datasets, photographs and maps. Multimedia content aids discoverability of your research and allows users to engage with your publication – it allows for a two-way conversation rather than one-way communication. Users are increasingly searching across all types of content for answers to their research. SAGE’s social media strategy aims to increase the visibility of our journals by ensuring their content is where the user wants to start their search and building on that visibility by encouraging users to engage with that content.
