This week I’m participating in the Textbook and Academic Authors Association conference in Philadelphia! I will live-blog on MethodSpace to share ideas I glean from presenters and attendees. After the conference I will post a summary of my own presentations, with links to resources.
TAA is an association of and for writers from all disciplines. You can find my monthly TAA Abstract blog posts here.
Read my post: Research Impact and Academic Blogging in the new issue of Research Information.
