The most useful textbook & academic posts of the week: October 5, 2018

×
This week's collection of posts from around the web begins with three "part two" editions of some useful blog series on dissertation writing, turning your PhD into a book, and ethical principles for independent researchers. We then include articles with insight on how the individual author is part of a larger authoring system and how to develop effective visualizations that say something solid. We close out the list with some industry news and advice on the single project awarded $4.9M in federal funding, research for social good, and the ongoing publisher battle against ResearchGate. When facing big issues like those addressed in this week's collection, fear can sometimes undermine success, so as you head forth this week, remember the words of Sheryl Sandberg who said, "Don't let your fears overwhelm your desire." Happy writing!
