OVPR launches Research Tracks blog and Twitter feed

March 25, 2013

Beginning this month, the Office of the Vice Provost for Research is transitioning Research Tracks from a once-monthly PDF newsletter to a regularly updated blog. At its new online home, Research Tracks will continue to deliver highlights of faculty research, notices of upcoming campus events and opportunities for internal and external funding. It will also include multimedia content and links to other items of interest to the Baylor research community.

The new blog is located at http://blogs.baylor.edu/researchtracks, where you can subscribe to the blog to receive email alerts of new posts, or use the RSS feed to add Research Tracks to your favorite news aggregator.

Alongside the new blog, the OVPR has launched a Twitter feed, available at http://www.twitter.com/BaylorOVPR. Follow the OVPR for announcements, news and updates on research and scholarly activity across the university (click here for a "Twitter 101" guide for first-time users).

We welcome your feedback on the new blog and twitter feed or your suggestions for future stories. Please feel free to

contact the OVPR with any suggestions.
