The International Network of Next-Generation Ecologists (INNGE) is a network that seeks to bring early career ecologists together from around the world. It is the hope that this will help to strengthen international ties and inspire new activities in a growing global community of ecologists.
Each Thursday, INNGE tweets about a paper with an early career researcher as the primary author, and asks for you to do the same using the hashtag #ECRpaper. The author should still be early in their career. Add the author’s twitter handle, if they have one, a link to the paper, and a hashtag specific to the field of study (e.g. #Ecology).
Here’s what INNGE hopes to achieve with #ECRpaper:
- Foster debate and discussion about research by early career scientists
- Build connections among early career researchers and expand their colleague networks
- Help early career researchers see directions other early career researchers are moving
- Help everyone see the directions their fields are moving
- Bring publicity to work by early career scientists
An easy place to see all these tweets in one place is on INNGE’s#ECRpaper aggregator, which organizes tweets by field of study.
You do not have to be an early career researcher to join this movement. Scientists from all career stages are encouraged to participate. We all benefit when early career scientists are supported to do the best work they can.
The MAHB will also be using Thursdays to highlight research by early career scientists, please contact us if you have an article you would like to share.
