Monthly Journal Club

The Surveillance Lab journal club meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month (at 1:30-ish or immediately following the regular lab meeting).

Please upload your paper to the wiki (or email to Katia) by the end of Friday before you are scheduled to present.

You may feel free to also upload slides to take the group through the paper and/or discussion questions for everyone to think about as they read the paper. Either way, please be prepared to give a quick summary of the article, explain why you chose it, say what you liked and didn't like about it, and bring up a couple of issues to start the discussion.

Please note some guidelines for paper selection. Papers should be:

  • High-quality
  • Peer-reviewed research articles
  • Of broad interest - the subject of the article doesn't have to overlap with the specific research interests of everyone (or anyone!) in the group, but it should address a question or take an approach that is interesting or exciting
  • On a topic that you have enthusiasm for
