“Pracademics” on blogging as a research dissemination strategy

Check out this post from Dr Martin Webber, written by Laura Clohessy, for London School of Economics, on the scope for blogging within academic research and practice.

Just this morning I received an email from a colleague with new impact factor figures for popular journals, and yet we ask ourselves, are academic journals the most impactful way to reach individuals who will implement the findings of research?  The LSE article discusses the impact of blogging and how it serves as a platform to document the progress of a study.

We’re curious, what do you think about blogging as a strategy to disseminate research?
