That paper I submitted in September and have been revising forever... it's accepted! I don't ever have to touch it ever again!

Details: I am part of a relatively new education program for trans youth in STEM. We have a poster which we've been presenting at academic conferences in various STEM fields which have an "education" category. Our program is the first of its kind and we think it's important to spread information about what we're doing. Reception so far has been overwhelmingly positive. We were accepted at two conferences but just rejected at one, which caught us by surprise.

Advice please! Is it considered appropriate or common to appeal a rejection if you submitted an education poster for presentation at a STEM conference?
Ladies, if he:
- Never responds to your texts
- Travels for years ignoring everyone
- Is tiny

publishing anxiety Show more
I really, really need this article draft to be out of my hands forever. I've done so many revisions of it by now and I feel like I'm so far behind on getting it re-submitted that it's making me anxious and exhausted every time I look at it. Please let this be the last time, please.
Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.
I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.
I promise to use this to design better buildings.
Please help retoot this so I can find someone.
What would change if the sun rose in the West and set in the East? A lot actually.
A retrograde spin would produce a reverse Coriolis effect. Researchers used the Max Planck Institute Earth System Model to produce a model of Earth's climate in this scenario.
Overall, Earth's total desert coverage shrunk from 16 million square miles to 12 million. The Sahara, Middle East, and Australia sprouted grasslands & rainforest, and the American southeast and La Plata, and East China became new deserts.
I am an astrophysicist with research interests in space physics. My passion is science education and outreach. Love: hiking, cooking, gardens

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.

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 @email@example.com 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.
