What's your 2015 research revolution? That's the question asked by George King of Digital Science (a software and technology company for the scientific research community), and a lot of people are responding by publishing their research resolutions on Twitter using the #researchresolution hashtag.From money to writing, data to transparency, and everything in between, people are sharing their 2015 research resolutions on Twitter.Let's take a look at some of those resolutions:

I resolve to conduct better photo/video documentation of procedures to help peers understand/recreate my work. #ResearchResolution— loyal hall (@HallLoyal) January 12, 2015
Transparancy rules... I resolve to get old data of the shelve / out of the drawer and publish to share #ResearchResolution— Cathy NLBE (@Cathy_NLBE) January 12, 2015
Inspired by the talk by @chrislintott at #Force2015 my #ResearchResolution for 2015 is to do more citizen science!— Alan Hyndman (@DigitalanUK) January 12, 2015
My #ResearchResolution(s) are: Maintain immaculate lab book & write informally about my research for better understanding & #scicomm skills— Aimee Eckert (@aimee_e27) January 12, 2015
My other #ResearchResolution is to find out how effective #primaryscience is at building #STEM interest for girls.— Anne Vize (@anne_vize) January 13, 2015
What's your #ResearchResolution? Mine is to continue practising #openscience, and help to inform others about options— Jon Tennant (@Protohedgehog) January 12, 2015
For my 2015 #ResearchResolution I'll make a data management for each project and stick to it. I'll also publish #openaccess @digitalsci— Amy Neeser (@pseudoAMYloid) January 12, 2015

As you scroll through the tweets using the #researchresolution hashtag, you'll see many people are planning to increase their open access publishing and increase transparency in their research overall during 2015.It's not surprising to see so many scientists, university instructors, and students using social media and starting blogs to share their work with larger audiences in real-time. This is a trend that will continue with more and more scholarly writers shifting at least some (if not most) of their publishing to their own blogs and platforms that they control.What do you think? Leave a comment and share your thoughts on the future of scholarly publishing, open access, and blogging (or other forms of transparent online publishing).Image: Amy licensed CC BY 2.0
