What survival skills do academics need to become digitally agile and to establish an effective digital academic presence? The twenty first century Academic is an engaged researcher, who connects, builds and sustains varied and global audiences interested in their research. In one handy book, this essential read contains comprehensive advice on developing and sustaining a unique mix of twenty first century scholarly skills and digital competencies. From getting started with Twitter to more detailed advice on how to manage time when performing the roles of an academic blogger and forum moderator, this book provides real world case studies to illustrate how to integrate digital engagement with traditional scholarly work. With a range of helpful strategies, The Digitally Agile Researcher is a credible and practical guide for academics at all stages of their career, doctoral students, early career researchers or experienced academics. "The Digitally Agile Researcher is an important and welcome contribution to a growing literature on academic scholarship in the digital age. The book should be read by faculty and administrators alike, as it lays out a clear roadmap of the digital opportunities and challenges that researchers face and they support they require. If there is any hope for the future of the contemporary university, it will come through the communities we forge in new scholarly practices and the ways in which we negotiate digital society. The Digitally Agile Researcher will be instrumental in fostering those communities." Karen Gregory, University of Edinburgh, UK
