Libertas Academica has recently begun using the image-focused social media site Tumblr to publicise new articles and other news.
Benefits of Tumblr
Through Tumblr readers are updated when new articles are published in Journal of Cell Death that contain interesting or unusual images, and are linked directly to the article through the Libertas Tumblr webpage. A once-weekly summary of articles published is also provided.
Authors whose articles include suitable figures or photographs will have an image from their article and the article link displayed on the Libertas Tumblr blog*. This will give the article increased online visibility.
What is Tumblr?
Tumblr was founded in 2007 with the aim to be easy to use and allow high quality videos and photographs to be easily uploaded and viewed. Since then it has been highly successful, breaking into the top 10 most popular social media sites.
Tumblr is one of the largest and fastest growing social networking sites in America. It attracts around 13.5 million visitors every month and has received over 5 billion posts to date.
Why is Tumblr Unique?
Tumblr is unlike other social media because it focuses on vision and sound posts instead of text. Almost all posts on Tumblr include a photograph, drawing, video, or auditory clip. This makes Tumblr an ideal medium for Libertas to promote new articles that feature unusual and appealing images.

My experience with Libertas Academica was excellent. The review process was smooth and speedy. After publishing, I received a kind and favorable response from a reader. I have never experienced such a comment after my publications to orthodox journals.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
