Things are evolving quickly: This page is outdated. There is a new page which collaboratively gathers lists based on Academcis on Mastodon. Please visit https://github.com/nathanlesage/academics-on-mastodon.
How to find your academic peers on mastodon? Or discover new interesting researchers in your discipline? I started a list of sociologists, which now turned to a minimalistic web app that has been adapted for other disciplines. Here I try to give an overview over these different websites.
How does it work? The websites provide you with a list of academics from a discipline or field of research. You can select all or specific accounts and eport them in a CSV file, which can be uploaded to your Mastodon account in order to follow them all in one go.

There are also several groups for academic topics and disciplines.

If you want to set up a following list for your discipline as well, please have a look at our GitHub repository. You are welcome to tag me, wehen you post your webpage, so I can share it here and on Mastodon (@email@example.com). You are also invited to contribute to this minimalistic, but hopefully usefull tool further.
