Episode 2: Ship, measure, and learn

As a scientist, your goal is to produce outputs — if you’re not sharing your research you’re just doing a hobby.

But how do you know if you’re doing something that’s important? In other words, are your outputs solving problems?

In the latest episode of the Startup Scientist, Dan discusses how to use the ‘ship-measure-learn’ feedback loop to help quickly figure out whether you should persist with your work or pivot elsewhere.

He also explains how you can use Altmetrics to gain almost instant feedback on your work.
