Other online scholarship advice
I'd like to collect other places I find with useful advice to practicing scholars. The blogging platform I'm using (run by the University of Michigan Library) does not have an obvious way to create pages, or sidebar blogrolls, so for now I'll use this entry and add to it as I discover other resources (or until I figure out how to create a static page).
- Study Hacks, by Cal Newport. He has published two books on college success (well-reviewed at Amazon). The blog offers snippets of advice, many of which are useful for post-student scholars as well.
- Tomorrow's Professor, by Rick Reis. A Stanford professor who has been publishing this mailing list since publishing a book by the same name in 1997. There have been 847 postings to date. Most are short essays written by others. See also the Tomorrow's Professor Blog, which lists the postings and hosts discussions and comments about them.
- Getting Things Done in Academia, by Mike Kaspari, a professor at the University of Oklahoma. He offers "advice for graduate students on creativity, scholarlship, communication and time management".
