The British Library is currently running a Twitter based competition for all PhD authors and current doctoral students, inviting them to say why their doctoral research is/was important, using the hashtag #ShareMyThesis.
The competition aims to raise awareness of the importance of doctoral research and increase visibility of the PhD thesis as a valuable source of research information. It is generously supported by Research Councils UK and Vitae, and there are some great prizes.
The competition closes on 9 February, when eight entries will be shortlisted and invited to expand their tweet into a blog post. Entries are flooding in already, and you can see them all here:
