He joined Academia.edu over a year ago, hoping to create an online contact point and a place to share his research. Like many other temporary staff, Chris does not have a personal homepage provided by his University, so he looked to Academia.edu to create an online presence for his work.
The very same day that Chris signed up to Academia.edu (in Feb 2011), another user reached out to him through the site to offer him an expenses paid trip to Canada to present his work and an international conference for Human Rights! How is that for proof that Academia.edu increases scholarly communication and networking?!
Chris’ favorite things about Academia.edu are that it widens the readership of his research and it is now really easy to find him and his papers on the web (a google search for “Chris Moores” brings up his academia.edu page in the top 5 results!).
