Crastina – the new wave of communicators of science
November–December 2017: “The scientist’s personal website”
Stephan van Duin: “Why you A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y need a personal website as a scientist”
A Crastina Column by Stephan van Duin, biologist and cofounder & business director of The Online Scientist.
The November–December theme 2017: the scientist’s personal website
Being a scientist means that you need to promote yourself as skilled and influential individual in your professional field. And that a website is a perfect tool for that we can see in any business of independent intellectuals – design, consulting, public speaking, fiction writing and so forth. Still, only a small minority of the research community has taken this step.
As I see it, there are several strong reasons to register your own domain and start building a website, e.g. in WordPress format:
It is a way of manifesting your autonomy.
It helps you move faster than the services that the university system offers.
- It’s a great place to store interesting stuff that doesn’t make it to the peer-reviewed journal articles.
It is a powerful platform for science or tech persons who want to diversify their professional role. For them, publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals is just the foundation for other activities like formation of opinion, policy making, popular adult education etc.
- It’s a great way be in control of your own channel to journalists, opinion makers and stakeholders of different kinds.
