Mine eyes have seen the glory of the great engagement plan. /
It is written so vapid it would offend even the Lord. /
In a most ungodly manner, to create a wild uproar. /
Profit governs all!

I have seen Ads in the side-bars of a thousand media sites, /
They have builded Them an altar in the masthead and the grafs; /
I can watch their righteous vid in the modal overlay. /
Mute that auto-play!

I have read a fiery clickbait writ in burnished rows of bold; /
As ye deal with propaganda so with you my grace shall deal; /
Let the Dudebro born of Rand, crush our morals with his hiel. /
Damn ye, Overton!

We hope the mighty blockchain will solve our money woes! /

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.
