Promote your research through a custom tag

Many of you are working on research projects that you might want to blog about, and then might want to link to all the blog posts about that research. This is easy to do with Word Press (the platform that this blog uses). For example, we can easily link to all the What is ….? posts by linking to the category (you can see these categories down the right hand side of the main blog page).

As well as using categories, we can also use tags. This is, for example how we link to the various video projects that we promote on the blog (for example we have a video category, and we can drill down via a tag to get all the Periodic Table videos).

On this blog, we have a category of Research at UNMC. We also have categories of FASS, FoE and FoS.

However, we have not, as yet, linked to specific research areas. The best way to do this would be to tag certain posts that appear within theĀ Research at UNMC category.

I have had a look through the various posts and identified one obvious candidate (MEME), which I have now tagged so anybody can look at all the posts that we have made on this project (the URL is http://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/malaysiaknowledgetransfer/tag/meme/).

If you would like to promote your own research in this way then we can easily set up a tag for you. But, we would need at least three posts to make it worthwhile grouping the posts together.

If you are interested, please let us know, so that we can discuss the best way to move this forward.
