Checklist for Reviewing (And Thus Writing) A Research Paper

The instructions given to the program committee members for GROUP 2014 are unusually detailed and well-organized. I think they provide a great jumping-off point for scholars to reflect on how they review as well as write papers. Kudos to Program Co-Chairs David McDonald and Pernelle Bjorn for writing these up — reviewers and authors everywhere should take notice and step up their game!

Introduction to Zotero

I will be giving a talk on February 25 for members of the Northeastern University Lab for Texts, Maps, and Networks on how to use the excellent and open-source reference management tool, Zotero. This is a great tool for managing all the citations you need to keep track of for projects, organizing all those papers you should be reading, syncing changes to the cloud, and creating resources for sharing references with collaborators. And it’s much less evil than EndNote or Mendeley 🙂

Details on the talk time and location are here, but if you’re too busy to follow the link, the talk will be from 12:00 – 1:30pm in 400B Holmes Hall (map). I’m not sure if there will be a video recording, but if there is, I’ll post the link when it becomes available.

Slides I’ll be using are available here based on an existing tutorial and the excellent documentation.

Harvard CRCS talk

Today, I gave a talk in the lunch seminar series at Harvard’s Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) about my dissertation-related work on socio-technical trajectories. Slides are here and the talk was recorded — I’ll post a link to that as soon as it’s available since I need to take some notes on some excellent ideas audience members had about how to extend this research!
