I think a new approach to scholarship is needed, which harnesses the power of social media. Something which I call Academic Journalism.

This is because people search - they are information rich and time poor. It's important to capture audiences who are increasingly reading on smartphones and tablets - they click and they share. Journal articles perhaps suffer in this arena. Plus, it's really important to get ideas out there and to claim that space - especially when there is a lag between having a journal manuscript under review and the speed at which industry moves. An added benefit is that constantly thinking, writing, and sharing builds your network, and helps to improve your ability to express key points, to diverse audiences.

The following article summarises my approach.
