I came from a masterpost on tumblr and this place looked fun...so here I am...I also have interests in writing...not gonna lie but I don't post often so this might be my only post...thanks I can't wait to find out more about this community... :)))
@oakhaze Hi welcome :)
@bgcarlisle hi, thank you :))
@oakhaze Feel free to post as much or as little as you like—no pressure! :)
@bgcarlisle lol thank you! it's not pressure i guess, it's more that fact that i'm like a grandma with technology, i only post things when i'm shopping for a new cane online 😅

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, 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"
(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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
