Anyone here get Zotero to sync to a self-hosted @nextcloud ? I am having a *lot* of trouble trying to get this to work...

Can we all just agree to call TERFs FARTs (Feminism Appropriating Radical Transphobe) from now on?

does anyone know of a neutral alternative name for "adhd" which doesn't pathologise people for their neurodiversity (i.e. no "disorder")?
(boosts welcome)

I'm super excited (and proud) that I just uploaded a work project (on #OER) into GitHub as (mostly) Markdown files:


Spring: Yo yo yo yo Cool V, why don't you give me a cue

Spring: One more cue and then I'm ready to go in

The existence of "meat space" implies the existence of "vegetable space," "dairy space" and "bread space"

Hey if anyone has any examples of cooperatively/collectively owned and operated restaurants could you let me know?

Slightly urgent. Boosts appreciated.

NB stands for nota bene, which means "note well" and is often used to draw attention to important things like beautiful enbies.

By which I mean all of them. Pay attention to enbies.

friendly reminder that the things you say on here arent really private even in DMs

Been a long time, Scholar! Been busy with keeping things together my final semester of undergrad, but now I really need some advice from folks with more experience
As part of my department portfolios (and future plans) I need to write up my CV, which I've never done. I've consulted online resources and they seem contradictory.
Can anyone offer any guidance on how to write and structure a CV for someone who is just finishing undergrad?

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 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.
