Request for help (librarians especially!!); Boosts++ Show more
I've got a request from a friend on another instance for help looking for scholarly resources about audience engagement with the performing arts, specifically marching bands, if possible
Would there be a librarian available to point us in the right direction?
Do you have some thoughts on what #OpenAccess to knowledge means? The Wikimedia Foundation is seeking your short films, visual art, poetry, short fiction, & creative essays for an anthology (also there's a prize).

@ErikaAlpert @saqeram @Aepasek That sounds right to me too. They want a clear sense that you will start doing something and that you have thought about a realistic plan. I have written a few of those. None of the jobs I have had were from those applications so I feel unqualified to speculate about what a good plan looks like.

So, one of the revisions that was requested for my thesis is that I include some illustrative maps. The problem: I only have two weeks to do this. Are there any open source or free to reproduce map archives out there?
I need help with quantitative research “decoding.” My background is *not* psych but my masters degree (masters of Family Therapy) requires the current research methods course.
I’m watching some YouTube vids on concepts such as Kappa coefficients but does anyone have other sources for a crash course? I took stats in undergrad... but that was over 20 years ago.
Thanks, friends -

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.
