Blogs have become very popular mechanisms for the quick dissemination of information. A blog is a way for researchers to connect with the wider community – a community not reached by publishing in journals. The web has made informal communication a key resource.
Major research institutes, journal houses, universities and academics are already blogging. Via the NeuRA blog our team will discuss papers, describe data, share images and videos and keep you informed about the latest NeuRA news, research and events.
The NeuRA blog is a way for NeuRA to generate content that can be read by the public, students, academics, clinicians and consumer groups and then shared via social media and email.
The NeuRA blog will be integrated into our communication portfolio and support NeuRA website content, the NeuRA Magazine, our media releases, Profile Magazine, NeuRA multimedia, our Twitter, Facebook and Youtube feeds, and the work of the NeuRA Foundation.
