Academic and research Mastodon servers
This page lists Fediverse servers that are related to science, research, education and academia. Most are Mastodon servers where it is not that important where you start because it is really easy to move and because in the Fediverse it is possible to communicate with people on other servers. The main reasons to find a server that is right for you are the local time line with posts by people on your server, which can help build your circle of friends, and the moderation policies, which should fit your values. Most descriptions below are taken from a longer list at Fediverse.party. Suggestions for servers that should be on this list are very much welcomed.
