Academicons is an icon font for academics. It aims to supplement other packages (such as Font Awesome) with icons for academic websites. There are currently 18 icons in the set. You can request new icons by creating an issue here.
Academicons was originally built as a supplement to Font Awesome, which means that the two fonts share the same metrics.
css folders on your server and link to the
academicons.css stylesheet by placing the following in the page header:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/folder/css/academicons.css"/>
Call the icons in the same way as you would using Font Awesome, but replacing
ai. For example:
<i class="ai ai-google-scholar-square ai-3x"></i>
Note: Each icon also has an associated

The font files can be installed locally on your system, allowing access to the icons through most publishing software. You can also access the full set of icons in LaTeX using the Academicons package.
