Minor pet peeve. Why do journal websites still insist on a "download citation" link instead of giving the option to just display copyable text on screen?

How many files containing a single reference, called "citation.bib" do you think I need, publishers??

people always get confused about what colorblindness feels like, for me its not that i cant recognize colors, like if i see red i know that its red, its more when colors are blended or next to each other, like for example if blue is next to purple or green is next to yellow its really hard to tell them apart

You realize strange things about words while meticulously writing them out, letter by letter, for a project.

Danger. Dangest. Most Dang.

Any anthropologists (or, honestly, like anyone who feels like it) on here wanna read and give me some feedback on a title and abstract?

The draft of my paper I'm looking at is nonsense. I must approach it like any pile of trash. Pick up one piece at a time and put it where it belongs.

@byttyrs dear people who think GMOs are bad:

sheep were not naturally that fluffy. We modified their genes. "GMOs" have always existed, we just do it faster now. The problem is that companies like Monsanto use the tech to make supercrops that can't be replanted, and that trash the soil for anything else, so farmers get stuck re-buying the same overpriced Monsanto corn every season. And anyone not using GMO corn can't keep up.

In other words, the problem isn't GMOs, it's unregulated capitalism.

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
