Just put my retainer in for the first time in like three years. All I taste is pain.

Sure. I wasn't trying to advocate that DOIs should not be allowed. Moreso noting that DOIs seem to go against the current wording of the community standards.
@bgcarlisle @RaoOfPhysics

I was thinking about the language from the community standards about obfuscation of the link target which occurs with a DOI. Most DOIs are reputable though I don't know about user tracking. However, I could start a random blog and use The Winnower or another service to point DOIs to it.

@socrates maybe you've addressed this before so sorry if I've missed it, do DOI links go against the no shortened links clause of the community standards?

The Engineering Archive now has had more preprint submissions in 2019 than were submitted in all of 2017! Not #AprilFools!

Maybe hide the salary in the job description. Like the first letter of each line spells the amount.

@bryanalexander totally, we are a mid-sized university (9500 students) and you could operate our entire university off of the endowment interest of several places.

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 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.
