Influence of Academic Social Networks
on the Visibility of Scientific Research Papers


Social networks are an integral part of everyday life and work of modern people and one of the basic ways of communication and exchange of information among them. The desire for a quick exchange of information regarding scientific achievements and the need for their greater visibility have led to the emergence of social academic networks. Communication on social networks has its positive and negative aspects in both everyday and scientific lives. The need for face-to-face interaction is lost, but the connection and cooperation of researchers can be achieved regardless of place and time. Transparency and availability of scientific results are also provided. These possibilities are the basic characteristics of the Open Science movement. The science of the modern age depends on the visibility, accessibility and possibility of disseminating the results of scientific research. In this paper, an attempt has been made to present a number of academic social networks available to researchers, as well as to analyze their impact on the visibility of scientific results in the academic community.
