1. Citizen science is the act of involving the general public in the processes of data collection. Citizen science can be a great way to generate more robust research results, while helping the general public understand some of the fundamentals of the scientific process and data collection techniques. Katie Villano-Spellman is currently completing her PhD at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and has incorporated a citizen science component to her research project about invasive species in Alaska. Katie discusses the lessons she has learned in incorporating citizen science into her research, and provides a step by step process and tips for those who are interested in using this effective research and outreach technique.

  4. Presented by: Liz Neeley, COMPASS Communication Partnership for Science and the Sea

    Social media is all the buzz... but is it more than that? This webinar will focus on how and why the information landscape has changed and what that means for scientists. We'll explore the various ways researchers can participate in the online conversation with an eye toward providing meaningful answers to the question of "why bother?" We'll talk about the idea of branding yourself and your research niche, show you options for using social media to your advantage, and discuss strategies for creating a professional online presence.

  5. Presented by: Caroline Sutton, Co-Action Publishing & Helle Goldman, Polar Research

    Submitting work to peer-reviewed journals is a daunting prospect for many young scientists. In this webinar, Caroline Sutton (co-founder of Co-Action Publishing) and Helle Goldman (Chief Editor of the journal Polar Research) demystify the process by explaining what happens to a manuscript after it's submitted, focussing on how submissions are evaluated. This webinar introduces a range of topics connected to journal article publishing, including single-blind versus double-blind review, tips for authors submitting manuscripts, ethical issues (plagiarism, salami slicing, duplicate publication), understanding the fine print in publishers' contracts, open access publishing and how authors benefit from it.
