If you find Open Science more important than Open Access, then read this:

Fwd: "Plan S and the Open Science Community" chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2019

after data citations, software citations are starting to get serious too now, it seems. Results by the Zenodo team: blog.zenodo.org/2019/01/10/201

Mind blown. Just found out about this "font" that takes advantage of subpixel rendering to be absurdly small: msarnoff.org/millitext/

(Quotes added since the color information is critical; i.e., it's not simply an outline like typical typefaces.)

About my book... "Groovy Cheminformatics rises from the ashes" chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2018

I moved to Markdown but wanted to preserve live code and autogenerated reference sections.

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 in academia, 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 @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.
