So, I SUCK @ doing these sort of #introduction stuff but I'll try.
My name is Veronica. I'm currently a nursing student attempting to get an RN here in the US. I love to #write short stories. Although, with school, it hasn't been happening as much unless it's school-related. I love biological sciences & history, traveling, reading, and video games (hello Spider-man PS4 and AC: Odyssey).
But I'm happy to be here and hope to interact with you guys soon.
@veronica Hi welcome :)
@bgcarlisle thank you! 😊

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"
(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 @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.
