Most useful textbook and academic posts of the week: December 4, 2020

×
What's your purpose as an academic author? According to Albert Camus, "The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself." Our work as academic and textbook authors can have significant influence on our colleagues, our field, and society at large. So, do you know your purpose? And, are you fulfilling it? We begin this week's collection of articles from around the web with questions that probe the concept of purpose as researchers and authors. We then explore topics of support for our writing, pursuit of relevance, societal impact, and trust & credibility.
