Journal / methods club
Journal Club, Methods Journal Club
The Journal Club presents an opportunity to engage in dynamic discussion about relevant research publications. Each participant has a chance to select a paper of interest and to lead discussion. Chosen papers are distributed a week prior to meeting to allow time for all participants to review the paper. Students can discuss questions and concerns with more experience researchers in a supportive, collegiate environment.
The Methods Journal Club provides the opportunity for staff and students to present papers of methodological interest for discussion.
