The most useful textbook & academic posts of the week: August 31, 2018

×
"Half of my life is an act of revision." Wise words from John Irving for all writers and ones that thread through our collection of posts this week. We begin with discussions of how to manage multiple writing projects, interpret data visualizations, and use diary methods in qualitative research. We then share practical advice on successful publishing in journals, informed consent, fellowships, and balancing a PhD with a family. Closing out our list is the prediction that textbooks are here to stay, along with new resources including scholarly podcasts, open and interoperable annotation, YouTube videos, and open science tools. Whether you are revising a manuscript or your writing craft this week, we hope that you will find value in some of the resources below. Happy writing!
