Hi everyone,

I am a PhD student in social anthropology. I come from Italy but I study in Germany.

I have heard about Mastodon five minutes ago and I am just trying to understand how does it work.

@sedanorapa Hi welcome :)

We have slightly different rules and expectations here on scholar.social, so I recommend that you have a read through our Community Standards:

scholar.social/about/more

@sedanorapa its pretty user friendly just don't expect the amazing support and spying on your personal life that you get from Facebook or Twitter.

Ciao Alice! 😁 Cosa studi esattamente?

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 @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.
