I've seen a lot on #AcademicTwitter about people struggling to read journal articles that they've flagged. Like many others, I need to stay up to date on the latest literature. Here's are 10 tips about how I was able to "read" 500+ articles in the past 3 yrs.

A 🧵

This process takes me between 2 and 10 minutes.

1⃣I email myself articles that sound interesting or relevant.

2⃣I “snooze“ the article so that one article a day shows up in my inbox at 6 AM.

3⃣Reading the article is the first thing I do in the morning. If I don’t read it in the first 30 minutes of my day, I know I won’t get to it.

4⃣I skim through the abstract (30 seconds)

Musings on exercise from an #impsci psychologist. Thread. I was NOT an athlete growing up. I was always picked last for sports. I hated running around the gym in circles (always got a side stitch). I never scored a goal (despite playing soccer for years as a forward).
My identity was not "athletic." Fast forward to my clinical psychology PhD (grueling). I read about the protective benefits of exercise and started running to train for a 10-miler (#BSR proud) in 2006. I started out running 1 min, walking 9 min in 10 min increments.
Took me 5 years to find my flow. Don't give up. Did you know exercise protects your mental health? What's the secret sauce? For me: (1) community (people in class and a kick ass consistent instructor), (2) music, (3) goals, (4) and how I feel after

With so much happening in the world right now, it’s been hard to keep up with all the high-value #impsci published in 2020 – but I’m trying!

Here are five articles that I’m excited to incorporate in my #implementationscience teaching and research:
Already using this article/slide to introduce #impsci in classes and workshops. Really helpful when teaching or speaking to intervention scientists, epidemiologists, and clinicians who find #impsci vocab unfamiliar and (frankly) off-putting.…
Equity will be a theme running through my #impsci course this fall. So much to chew on in this article. Here’s a nugget: implementation is all about fit. This idea precedes #impsci as a field, but its relevance for improving equity resonates loudly today.…

#impsci can inform how we support people through this difficult period of extreme change. We asked people about their barriers to #PhysicalDistancing and grouped data from 387 respondents. Here are the 12 themes we found:
Please RT for gov, health experts, and researchers!
Data is open access – you can get the raw data here:

After considering these themes, we want to open up the conversation. What are new barriers that are coming out now? What have you noticed? 2/18
Note: We wanted to hear participants' perspectives on why they chose to or chose not to practice physical distancing. This work was not about judging anyone’s choices or behavior. The goal was to better understand everyone’s perspective. 3/18

To provide some clarity about #COVID19 in #Sweden 🇸🇪, here's our insight into the public health measures, the current situation and considerations for the way forward: @BerlinIgg. Life in Sweden is not continuing as usual during the pandemic. 1/18
Sweden’s strategy may be different from other countries, as it aims not only at reducing #COVID19 transmission but also at reaching other important health goals. The strategy combines regulations and advice with a strong emphasis on individuals’ responsibility for action. 🌍 2/18
Sweden is implementing #COVID19-related interventions with the same aspirations as other countries: reduce transmission and #FlattenTheCurve. 3/18

1/In light of #COVID19, organizational readiness seems more important than ever. So today in my 3 hr #impsci course, we're going deep into lit on importance of #organizational context, readiness, resources and leadership. We'll use one of my faves as case study (thanks @bjweiner)
2/ One thing I love about this piece of that the appendix goes in depth into about how they defined #organizational context, all the key stakeholders they interviewed, plus the qualitative questions they used for each organizational construct in their comparative case analysis.
3/ 2nd half of class we'll go into #stakeholder engagement, #CBPR, participatory processes- areas that we know are critical for #healthequity and to ensure our science impacts policy & reaches key groups who would benefit from it most. Love this piece as a #impsci CBPR case study

Okay, so I'm betting people are tired of my tweet floods on #impsci but bear with me for one more.
I wrote down some thoughts for our field as I was coming home on the train from #discience19, but amtrak wifi wasn't working. so... here are my thoughts for *our field*. #slpeeps, #wespeechies, folks who study #devlangdis (especially in the US) I'm talking to us.
There’s an urgency to a lot of the work being done at #discience19 that seems to be missing from our work as #wespeechies. I frequently heard that the (cancer, stroke, mental health, etc.) work can’t wait for us researchers to be sure it works or for a few R01 cycles to pass. 1/

Excited today to hear from @APA @ArthurCEvans at the #SIRC2019 conference. One thing I love about #ImpSci is how interdisciplinary it is!
@APA @ArthurCEvans You: Are you going to Live Tweet it?
Me, poised eagerly at my laptop: Do you even know me?
@APA @ArthurCEvans Imagine "John" - a difficult, chronic hospital patient. But interventions focused on John's goals and how providers could move him toward those goals got John to a place where he could be discharged. This is what happens when we use Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs)

Excited to have our work examining tradeoffs of alternative approaches to hematuria evaluation out in @JAMAInternalMed today. Sharing here origin story, highlights from the paper and related thoughts (THREAD)
Work with @pennstate2003 et al got us thinking about tradeoffs associated with differing recs in this context, in particular harms associated with radiation from CT & wide real-world dose variation (enter coauthor @UCRadSafety)
Concerns re low yield of CT & radiation harms… motivated coauthor Ron Loo et al to study their outcomes & ultimately implement new risk-stratified KP guideline

Packed room at 8:45am for the Pre-Conference Workshop #DIScience18
Core differences between #dissemination and #implementation research, the translational pipeline, and the breakdown of theories/frameworks. Also love the "plain language" slide: implementation outcomes are HOW WELL you DO the THING (intervention/practice/innovation) #DIScience18
There are A LOT of implementation strategies (discrete and multifaceted - see work by @byron_powell), but strategy selection must appropriately match to the implementation barrier, or else implementation looks like...(see last image) #impsci #DIScience18
