Review My Work
I am currently arguing that this blog is a publication. The idea for this came from Greg Downey’s post on Neuroanthropology at PLOS. He argued that the blog should be considered a publication, and proposed that the best way to do this was by soliciting reviews from other scholars in order to show the quality and impact of one’s work. You can see the original post here: Blogging for Promotion- An Immodest Proposal.
Over on GradHacker, I wrote my own proposal for framing the blog as a publication, and a number of ways that would help in gaining acceptance of this form of scholarship within the department. You can see the post here: Taking a Chance- My Blog as a Publication.
On the advice of Greg Downey and others, I am therefore asking for reviews and comments of support of my site to include in my mid-term review. If you have found my blog helpful, and see this blog as a scholarly publication, I would greatly appreciate it if you would write a comment of support on this page, citing specific posts or a general comment on the whole blog. Think of these as mini letters of recommendation regarding the quality of my blog and writing!
