A number of social media sites exist that have areas specifically addressing researchers. In addition, we have included the website of the INSPIRE group, an international pediatric simulation research collaborative, and the ISDR, a simulation-based data registry..
· LinkedIn group of Society for Simulation in Healthcare http://www.linkedin.com/groups?about=&gid=1775666&trk=anet_ug_grppro
· ResearchGATE https://www.researchgate.net is a free social networking site aimed at scientific researchers from all disciplines of Science. It provides free access to powerful web applications including semantic searching (whole abstract searching), secure time-incremented file-sharing, publication database sharing (e.g. endnote libraries), forums, methodology discussions, groups etc.
· ORCID http://orcid.org/
· Google Scholar https://scholar.google.com/
· ResearcherID http://www.researcherid.com/ is a global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community. With a unique identifier assigned to each author in ResearcherID, you can eliminate author misidentification and view an author’s citation metrics instantly. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world.
· SERMO www.sermo.com Online community where physicians around the nation exchange the latest medical insights with each other and improve patient outcomes.
· INSPIRE http://inspiresim.com/ The International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education. Engagement with this group may prove useful for those with research questions relevant to children’s health.
· ISDR http://simulationregistry.academicanesthesia.com/ The International Simulation Data Registry collects and benchmarks simulation-based data from a variety of scenarios, with a current focus on pulseless arrest. Those interested in further information can contact registry leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
