Social media websites are having a significant impact on how collaborative relationships are formed and information is disseminated throughout society. While there is a large body of literature devoted to the ways in which the general public is making use of social media, there is little research regarding how such trends are impacting scholarly practices. This paper presents the results of a study on how academics, primarily in social sciences, are adopting these new sites.
