A “rule of thumb” is a model … a statement of what is likely to happen: a prediction. With five minutes to speak to the publishers of many of the top science journals, I tried to distill the lessons learned about scientists and social media to a short set of “rules of thumb.” I was not surprised at all when the panel of scientists at the end of the day ..
