Most useful textbook and academic posts of the week: January 25, 2019

×
It's hard to believe that we have reached the end of the last full week of January already! Hopefully this month has been filled with new beginnings, fresh resolve toward you goals, and advancements in your academic writing endeavors, but there's a lot of 2019 still to come! For those of you in the final semester (or deep in the throws) of writing your thesis or dissertation, Pat Thomson's advice to "yodelayeehoo" may be useful this week - by the way, it's also great advice at multiple stages of your writing career. For those looking at what else the rest of this year and beyond has in store, the rest of this week's collection brings insight to that question. First, we celebrate continued advancements in open access. Then we explore tips for managing research, ways to build a social network in the field, and the future of scholarly communication. To close, we look forward by looking back to 1923 and the possibilities that await for the previously copyrighted works newly released into public domain. As you head into the days ahead, remember to "Write without Fear; Edit without Mercy". And, if you're one who likes inspiring reminders like this in physical form, stickers are available for use on your computer, smartphone, or office door through the TAA store. Happy Writing!
