Hi All! Here is my #introduction:
I am Wolfgang Viechtbauer, a statistician and assoc prof at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. My research is focused on the statistical methods for meta-analysis and more generally mixed-effects models and computational statistics. I am into #rstats, #linux, #foss in general, and lolcats.
@wviechtb Hi welcome :)
@wviechtb As a medical ethicist who works on (among other things) drug-portfolio-level ethical analysis and leans heavily on meta-analytic methods (and loves ) I am *very* excited to have you here :)
@wviechtb hi Wolfang!
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.
