I looked at a call for papers today that said that I couldn't submit something that was already published or accepted. Is that standard? I don't recall seeing it made explicit before.

@twsh For a journal? I thought that was common in that case. Otherwise, it sounds weird for me too.

@twsh Unusual. If they were thinking of publishing the proceedings, it would make more sense (but it doesn't seem to be the case).

For a workshop or for sharing work in progress, I think this kind of thing is an implicit requirement. But I fail to see the point for it at a larger conference.

@twsh I think that's common for large conferences in my field (life sciences). I think the point is they want people to gain more value from going to the conference, see more recent results, and have discussions that impact future publications.

@twsh depends on the field. Phonetics is the same. Language teaching, you can reel off the same old stuff you've done junket after junket.

@twsh I think it's standard because certain publishing companies have rules about sharing results after they have been published. I know I've seen that byline before, anyway.

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 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.
