Publishing Manager - Journal Development
Many journals editors are embracing Twitter in order to reach a digital audience and promote their journal(s) more widely. A well-managed journal Twitter account, as part of a wider marketing strategy, can help build and maintain the brand and reputation of journals and enable editors to connect with authors and readers on a personal level, enhancing key relationships.
To help support our editors who are already using Twitter to promote the journals they work on (and those who are keen to give it a try), we have put together some guidelines and tips. Why not share yours with us?
