Five minutes with Mark Blyth: “Turn it into things people can understand, let go of the academese, and people will engage”

September 7, 2013

See on Scoop.itMore … or less!

“Blogs with a more academic slant (crookedtimber.org being the best example) get work out to a wider public much faster and to many more readers. I’ve done on line seminars on books and specific topics in this manner and it’s great for feedback and impact. In short, I think that we are already there. Ten years from now closed-source academic journals will exist to the extent that tenure committees need warranties. Other than that we will largely live in a world of open source and multimedia.”
