TIME, LABOR, AND (RE)PRODUCTION
Somewhat relatedly, these types of scholarly profiles can expand beyond these platforms where you might create a website. In doing so, it might be a place to share articles, resources, etc. You can learn more about my process here, how I created my own site here, resources about the research section here, and some considerations for designing. Across all of these sites, websites or otherwise, they vary in time management. Some, like Google Scholar are automated while for others like Academia.edu or ResearchGate, you have to continually update them. Likewise, websites require their own time and maintenance.
Yet in doing all of these things, one aspect I think is important to consider is why. I write about it more here in an article with the Journal Committed to Social Change on Race and Ethnicity, but something critically important to consider is how we might be reproducing neoliberalism and productivity, OR alternatively, how we could use websites to create counterspaces and share resources. Why are we doing the work and sharing the work in the ways that we do? And for whom? (As you might know from the "Opportunities & Due Dates" section of this website, I am committed to challenging scarcity modeling and the competitiveness that arises within academia and that's part of my motivation in maintaining this site).
EVOLUTION & OTHER NOTES
With technology, trends, and timing, chances are the by the time you read this post (whenever it is), there are probably several new apps or sites to add, so please comment others are you've found or noticed. And if you're curious about what I utilizize, I obviously have a website (haha), and use ORCHID-ID and Google Scholar (both of which require you to create a profile). I also have an Academia.edu, BePress, and ResearchGate site but admittedly, am a little lax about keeping them updated.
This page includes tips, advice, and ideas put together by yours truly (hence the "me"). For more, check out "OUT-SOURCED" for curated resources that I find helpful, or scroll down for my WRITING BOOKSHELF. If you're looking for guides, check out TEMPLATES.
Writing is a craft. To sharpen mine, I read a fair amount of books, articles, excerpts, and more. At least for the books, here are some I've enjoyed.
And if you're looking to buy a book, support local bookstores, and/or buy via Bookshop.
