Online Resources from the American Association for the Advancement of Science 2019 Meeting

If you’re involved in science twitter at all, you may have noticed the #AAASmtg buzz last week. The American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting, with the theme of Science Transcending Boundaries, was held in Washington, DC from February 14-17, 2019. While I was not in attendance, I followed the impressive resources that were shared online through the #AAASmtg hashtag. I’ve highlighted some below:

  1. (Guide) Recommended Practices for Science Communication with Policymakers
  2. (Talk, by Karl Broman) Collaborating reproducibly
  3. (Article) Twitter bots play disproportionate role spreading misinformation
  4. (Thread) This twitter thread from the “Science Outreach Online” panel, which led me to #5
  5. (Paper) An Introduction to Social Media for Scientists

Bonus: check out this living resource document from a session titled “A Shared Vision: Overcoming Barriers for Scientists to Communicate and Engage.”

Social media allows meeting organizers and speakers to impact more than just the physical attendees–and I’m so very grateful for it.
