Workshops on Social Media in Science are addressed to scientists of any discipline in all career phases. They focus on the phase in the publication process that follows the writing of a scientific paper and its optimization as well as the actual publishing. Apart from using social media to disseminate own content and create profiles, the workshops also illustrate how social media can be used for networking, reputation building, information retrieval and research.
