I was wondering if we could have a community wiki (pre-approved) for questions pertaining to reference requests. Before that, let me define "reference requests". In Math.SE, SciComp.SE or SO or wherever, a frequently used tag is the "reference request" tag wherein the users ask for books or other reference material to learn a certain topic.
Within the scope of academia as well, there are many "topics" one may wish to learn about through reading.
In the same spirit as this, could we have a community wiki for topics like
- Pre-Grad School
- Grad School (Like This)
- Grad School > Professorship (Like This or This)
- As a professor (Like This)
- Academic Writing (Like This)
- Public Speaking (Like This)
This will serve 2 purposes:
It will check the number of "Can you suggest a place where I can improve my writing skills" type questions.
It will be a great resource at 1 place. (In true CW spirit?)
I apologize for all the "This" links but the titles of the books are rather off putting to be put here.
This might be a bad idea but I just wanted to try suggesting it.
