I've also done a standup presentation about @wikidata and Scholia last week at the meeting (but nothing you cannot see by just going to tools.wmflabs.org/scholia/)

I've also blogged today about the history of the term Open Science (a first in what probably will end up as a short series): chem-bla-ics.blogspot.com/2019

I've been a bit quite here... been busy. E.g. with two presentations about FAIR data in the nanomaterial field: zenodo.org/record/2585900

2019 March Journal Club Show more

@jrbe no, but a fair point... it should get some updates... (I think we need some fresh blood... the previous generation moved into PI positions, i.e. old and tired...)

Just released: #OpenRefine 3.2 beta, with new #clustering methods and copying of #Wikidata references in schemas. Many other bug fixes too! Get yours now: github.com/OpenRefine/OpenRefi

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.
