Reflections of guest #editors @CWTS at a #Frontiers journal on their experiences - confirming some prejudices https://www.leidenmadtrics.nl/articles/reflections-on-guest-editing-a-frontiers-journal
Looking forward to the conversations on Mastodon, and curious to discover how this will develop in the future.
To add to the above:
A star (liking) does nothing to help increase a post's visibility beyond the original author's followers.
I know it is strange coming from 🐦, but it really is the only way to increase a post's audience.
So #BoostAllTheThings (if you like them) and you will notice others will do the same to your content. Here we're all in it together!
Here to share our vision and communicate our commitment towards a more #FAIR research environment.
Looking forward to creating new connections in this community!
@ipoga All the tags are probably a good idea! :) We would just need to convince other people which tag to use.
I believe I already saw a larger #STS presence, but good idea to add these other hashtags.
In practice, I just checked a couple of accounts to see who they follow.
And don't forget you can use https://fedifinder.glitch.me/ to checkout who of the people you follow on Twitter are already here.
@gin My personal view is that organizations should be on Mastodon. The “openness” of mastodon aligns from my perspective also very well with #DataCite's understanding of being an open infrastructure.
In addition, most German public institutions/NGOs that do care about privacy already do have an account on mastodon.
Ok, let´s try this out.
I am Sabine, obviously #newhere and still quite confused!
I mostly post in English, but also in several other languages.
At first a bit confused about #Mastodon servers, how to choose and their significance. Thinking about it as domain kinda helps: public servers a bit like the gmail/hotmails of email, organization servers in the future like blue checkmarks. In the meaning, “yes, this is a real person, part of this organization”, which could be government, university, health care, media companies or even any other type of private company - which could solve *some* of the problems Twitter has.
I read this elsewhere: If trusted news outlets would start offering #Mastodon instances to their staff, that would bring some sort of verification and visibility. Think social.nytimes.com, social.heise.de etc. I'd love to read more from trusted journalists on the #fediverse and this could greatly help. (Again, not my idea but couldn't find the original author.) Boosts for visibility would be great. Reminder: Favorites don't help as on this other platform.
