@socrates what's the best way to link our profiles from another site? Can I use an icon, do we have an icon, like those I have at the bottom of 😅

@olivia @socrates I guess you can use the mastodon icon to link to your profile. Assuming that is your main mastodon account.

@saturno Voila! I did it with font-awesome (not the fork you linked to) — does it matter?

@olivia Great! I didn't know font-awesome already included the mastodon icon. That's wonderful!

@saturno thanks for telling me about fork awesome though too! I wish they had some "about" information so I could understand what is going on there, why it was forked, who did it, etc. I'm interested.

@olivia @saturno you are welcome. I don't have much information. I just know people in the fediverse were using it because font-awesome was too slow to add fediverse icons.

@olivia There's the Mastodon logo, like in your link, but if you want the Scholar Social tusks crest, click on preferences in the web interface, then right-click the crest above "Back to Mastodon" and save that image

If you need it in monochrome, I can email that to you

(I maaaay have made a monochrome version to print on some business cards hahaha)

@socrates oh wow! I see! It's a vector! I'm going to leave it as the vanilla mastodon logo, but thank you for explaining this to me. Very neat. 😍

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, 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.
