Most useful textbook and academic posts of the week: May 10, 2019

×
Several things textbook and academic authors are never short on: commitments, obligations, things to learn, and changing landscapes. This week's collection of articles from around the web includes them all as well. We start with the question of why college students are sleep deprived and overextended, look at tips for building a career in scholarly communication, and what it takes to be a co-author. We then explore different strategies for writing papers, making the most of summer plans, University Journals, and interdisciplinary mentoring. Finally we explore industry changes as Wiley buys Knewton and the University of California's decision on Elsevier. In the words of E. L. Doctorow, "Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go." This week we encourage you to write, explore, and learn as you go. Happy writing!
