This edition of the journal focuses on the many uses of social networking in nursing doctoral education, with particular emphasis on the role of technology and the internet. In the peer-reviewed section Darina Petrovsky examines the role of social media in the lives of PhD students, giving overview of social media platforms. Dr Beth Fahlberg then explains how social media can be leveraged to facilitate recruitment and dissemination in doctoral research. Finally Dr Caleb Ferguson, Dr Calvin Moorley and Professor Debra Jackson make the case for all doctoral students having a Twitter account. Elsewhere in the journal doctoral students from a range of different countries present insights into their learning journays, including some focus on social media.
