Dear Colleagues,

Ran across this FREE excellent academic platform called figbox I would like to share with everyone. Click here: https://figbox.co/
From what I have read fIgbox allow early career researchers (e.g., postdocs) and junior scholars the ability support each other through the exchange of feedback and academic content in the following categories:

PhD admissions/application advice
Thesis selection/ literature review
Quantitative and qualitative analyses
Methodological approach and design
Feedback on working scholarship/grant
Feedback on working paper
Feedback on working thesis
Submission/publication advice
Replying to referee reviews from journal
Handling academic conflicts
General career advice
Transitioning from academia into workplace

Check it out may be useful. Note I opted to sign up via google.

Best Regards,

[[Mod. note -- The author of this post did not provide a name or any
other identifying information beyond what's on the "From:" line.

As for the website, Caveat Lector. As far as I can tell, this is some
sort of social network for academics. They offer options to sign in with
an ORCID or a google account. There's no obvious indication on the website
of who the principals are, and I have no idea of whether or not they are
selling user data to spammers^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H"partner" companies.
