English abstract

The use of professional and scientific social networks: The case of three Galician universities . A survey conducted among 5,500 professors and researchers from the three Galician universities received 463 answers. The results reveal a rise in popularity of professional and scientific digital social networks, but it also shows a lack of knowledge about them and inefficient use of them. Ninety percent of Galician university professors are present in a professional or academic network, but only 8.64 percent consider themselves experts. LinkedIn and ResearchGate have the largest number of members, although their average use is medium or low. Biomedical, ngineering, and natural sciences scholars use more networks than the two previously mentioned; and social sciences and umanities scholars prefer Academia.edu. In total, 32.8 percent of the three universities’ scholars that answered the survey use social networks at least once a month. Social networks are used primarily to disseminate and follow publications, and, secondly, to get citations and improve reputation.

Spanish abstract

Una encuesta a 5.500 profesores e investigadores de las tres universidades de Galicia recibió 463 respuestas (8,42%). Se revela el ascenso y popularidad de las redes sociales digitales profesionales y científicas entre los académicos, pero también su todavía bajo conocimiento y uso eficiente de ellas. El 90% de los docentes universitarios gallegos que respondieron se ha inscrito en alguna red profesional o académica, pero sólo un 8,64% se considera como usuario experto. LinkedIn y Research-Gate son las que tienen más miembros, aunque con una utilización media-baja. Los de las áreas de ingenierías, biomédicas y ciencias naturales usan más esas dos redes citadas, mientras que en las ramas sociales y humanísticas se decantan por Academia.edu. El 32,8% del personal docente e investigador (PDI) que respondió las usa al menos una vez al mes para difundir y seguir publicaciones, en primer lugar, y luego para conseguir más citas y reputación.
