I just learned there is an entire podcasting network dedicated to reviewing authors of new academic books. The New Book Network: newbooksnetwork.com

I am just now discovering the spicy discourse about causation as a function of qualitative research and hooo boy is it just a lot.

I guess I should feel good that it's the formatting of charts and graphs in SPSS that I find frustrating, and not the actual statistics, right?

(Please, no proselytizing about SPSS, it's what is required for a course.)

Hey all!

A couple days ago I saw a recommendation for a really promising qualitative data collection/sort program and I forgot to favorite the post.

Any assistance with finding that post, or the name of the software would be greatly appreciated!

I know I’m still ~just~ a doctoral student in an educational technology program, but I’m preeeettty sure this is not how informed consent from minors works.

Quit using Mendeley people!

They started encrypting your database so you cannot easily move it over to other tools any more.


That link also helps you saving your data before it's too late.

(Elsevier are a bunch of crooks, blocking interoperability one-way and not the other. Almost as bad as Google blocking uBlock for your safety...)

Archaeology, but just for the weird pictures and patterns people make when they're gluing things together.

Thread: a really cool thing that students have told me about this term are "feminitives"—or basically just feminine endings on nouns. Russophone femininsts draw attention to women in non-traditional roles by ADDING feminine endings to words that don't usually have them.

e.g. vrach (doctor), vrachika (female doctor).

It's fascinating to me that this is the exact OPPOSITE of Anglophone feminist linguistic strategies. 1/

I'm done with the semester!

As a student, anyway.

Two more weeks and I get to make this post, but from the teacher lens!

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.
