Hi! I'm a sophomore undergrad working towards a career. I am really enthusiastic about and would love to learn all I can from other people! My hobbies include using JSTOR to look up random terms or concepts to see what I find and scifi/fantasy!

@bigbook hi! Have you tried JSTOR's Text Analyzer? It's especially fun if you like to play with search.

@delibrarian I haven't! Are there any good tips/tricks/fun things to try out? It looks super neat but I haven't had a chance to play around with it!

@bigbook Take any interesting article, or something you are writing, and upload it and let the text analyzer do its thing. Then play with the options on the results. I showed it to a grad student who thought it would be good for getting some ideas on topics represented in a text, too.

Scholar Social

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, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"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 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.
