Resources for Research Paper Writing
The Misogynoir to Mishpat Research Network has recently introduced its new Mentoring Cafe in partnership with the British Sociological Association’s Sociology of Religion (SocRel) Study Group. As with our post last week, we mentioned that Academia relies heavily upon publications as an indicator of both the academic’s contributions and as evidence of institutional leadership. With that in mind, we are posting an additional five resources from Dr. Anna Clemens. You can contact her directly on Twitter @scientistswrite. Leave a comment regarding any resources you’ve used that you found helpful.
