Just got invited to edit a special issue of a journal. The title they have planned is the subtitle of my @OUPAcademic book. For me, the article processing fee will be waived, but the up to ten people I recruit to submit will each pay ~$1100 to publish their pieces. Who's in?— Ellen Muehlberger (@emuehlbe) October 21, 2020
I have been asked a few times for a blog post on how to conduct a proper literature review.

According to The New Hampshire, Chapman was brought down by his own hubris when he tweeted about his brother’s brewery from both his fake account and his real account. The Science Femme and Chapman’s personal account have both been deleted, but unluckily for him, screenshots exist.
