Welcome . . .
Academics Only is a "How-to" website for anyone interested in academia. It's specifically intended to help frustrated PhD students, anxious new professors, and super-smart independent scholars of all shapes and flavors. There's separate tabs for each group, and there's a general interest blog and resource page for all.
Academia can be incredibly rewarding -- for you, your students, and those influenced by your research and other projects. I hope some of the ideas here can help speed you down that road so you can have a bigger impact and a lot of fun.
Let me know below what might help you most.
