@jakobpunkt @bgcarlisle @susannah that's what I do as well. Maybe I'm becoming too paranoid 😅

@jakobpunkt @bgcarlisle @susannah maybe what I really meant was, do you cite them? Could you be accused of "illicit" use of sources? Is there any legal base for such an accusation? 🤔

@kapwoo I don't mind that either, but I'm unsure about making "unlicensed" use of sources for articles that would need to get published... in those same journals 🙄

Scholars, do (or even can) you use sources you can only access through, say, ?

@izaro egurrezkoak ere egongo dira, baino nik ez ditut ikusten. Plastikorrozkoak, 2€tik hasi eta 10-15€ arte! Eta "markakoak" gainera, "faltsuak" ere badaude...

@izaro sin embargo, ahora existen de poca y mucha categoría (=€) y dejan nulo margen a la personalización...

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.
