These lists are opt-in only, so if you would like to appear on one or more of these lists, click their link. The lists provide instructions. Many lists even provide a form which you can fill in yourself. If you notice that a list violates the opt-in principle, please notify us so that we can take action.


There are also groups over on Mastodon that you can use to connect to fellow academics. Start your own or view more groups here.

This list is primarily maintained by Hendrik Erz (Linköpings Universitet). Below you can find ways to contact me in case you have individual questions regarding this collection of lists, or if you would report a potential opt-in violation (or similar issues).

PLEASE NOTE: This contact info is not meant to send me links to new lists. If you would like to add a list, please open a PR instead! In case that this somehow doesn’t work for you, you can also open an issue, state why the PR didn’t work, and provide the link to the list (and optionally the form). I receive dozens of work-related emails via the address below, so by keeping everything list-related here on GitHub I can keep that separated. Thank you very much for your understanding.
