Hey guys, I'm planning to start an iSci journal club. For those who haven't heard of journal clubs before, a journal club reviews current articles in scientific journals and runs short seminars on particularly interesting pieces.

What I am envisioning is having one person in the club running a seminar each week. What you'd have to do is find an current article, read/skim through it, and do a short (5-10min) informal presentation. The rest of the club will then discuss the article. If we have ~10 people interested, each person would only have to do 1 article every 2 months or so (unless people want to do more!).

I'm hoping that this club will help people keep up to date with the latest developments in science and might also help with learning how to read/write formal scientific papers.

Anyone who is interested (1st and 2nd years) please post a reply or send me an e-mail.

Charles,

Definitely down for the journal club! As Solomon said, it's a great way of keeping in touch with current events/discoveries in science.

The first meeting of the Journal Club will be next Wednesday at 7:00pm in the iStudy. To kick things off I'll be presenting Dr. Craig J. Venter's recent paper on the creation of artificial life.

Everyone please feel free to drop by; watching the presentation in no way obligates you to present yourself. Plus there will be food and drink!

Hey Guys,

The 3rd meeting of the journal club will be Wed Nov 17 at 7:00pm in the iStudy. Attendence has been pretty sparse for the past two meetings and I ask that everyone who can please, please come out. See you next Wed!

Cheers,

Charles Yin
