A key principle of SelectedPapers.net is that anyone can tag their posts anywhere (Google+, a blog, twitter, etc.) with the appropriate hashtags, and they’ll automatically be included in the index for whatever paper(s) they discuss. Right now this works with Google+, but we’ll extend this to other sources soon.
If you make a post or recommendation directly from SelectedPapers.net, the right hashtags will automatically be added to your post. But you can also tag your posts yourself (even if you have never logged in to SelectedPapers.net; indeed, if you have old posts that discuss specific papers, you could go back and edit them to add these tags). Please remember that hashtags cannot contain any characters other than letters, numbers, and the underscore character. So #generalRelativity is a valid hashtag, but #general-relativity is not! (we didn’t make these rules; Twitter did).
Here are the hashtags and paper ID formats to use:
That’s all you need!
A central principle of SelectedPapers.net is that innovations can spread most effectively if individual scientists simply recommend the papers they consider “essential reading” for their own work, and subscribe to receive recommendations from other scientists whose interests overlap theirs (and whose judgment they trust). It seeks to facilitate that process by unifying all discussion about a given paper on popular social networks (Google+ first, Twitter and others soon). So start making recommendations, and SelectedPapers.net will do the work to help others find your recommendations and subscribe to receive your future recommendations!
To mark a post as a recommendation, simply add one of the two following hashtags:
This means that you found the paper valuable for your research, and thus recommend that others who share that research interest would also find it valuable.
This means you consider the paper “required reading” for your research – it changed how you think or what you’re going to do. This is the strongest level of recommendation on SelectedPapers.net.
