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. Academia relies heavily upon publications as an indicator of both the academic’s contributions and as evidence of institutional leadership. With that in mind, please see the following resources to assist in your writing endeavors. Here’s the last set of resources made available via the tweet from Dr. Anna Clemens on Twitter. You may contact her directly on Twitter @scientistswrite.
