Interested in editing for JOSS ( We're looking to expand our editorial team: #opensource #openscience ⚡️🚀💥


I asked last week about journals to have a look at, and after looking at them today, I picked the Annals, all the way leading up to EurJOC (with a touch of KNCV):

Okay, time for some holiday season data science... I'm going after some of the earliest chemistry journals, and look at the chemicals they published about... Data will end up in (of course). Your most welcome to join.

we've passed the 200 supporters milestone and now are at 227.

Mind you, the ACS also published several journals in the medicine field, and the citation network (DOI-cites-DOI facts) does not only benefit chemistry but health care at large too... it's not too late to sign too

at 168 now... when/if we reach we can reach out to more chemists and start contacting ACS editors and officials... but I need your help reaching this... please spread the petition for more Open Citations:

And past the 150... On Twitter under I have posted a number of use cases.

Looking forward to the BioHackathon next week

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 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.
