I wonder what happened to the excellent idea of Blog Carnivals. Maybe I just haven't been noticing? (Like the Circus of the Spineless). Tonight I finallhy noticed there is a phenom called "Journal Clubs). A quick google says to me that they are common in medicine; that graduate courses are focused on them in Biological Sciences; that there are some more informal journal clubs. A few links.
Examples and other objects:
- The Phylo-Eco-Geo-Evo Journal Club: http://pegejournalclub.wordpress.com/
- A good edition of ScienceBlogs: Mystery Bird: Magnificent Frigatebird, Fregata magnificens: http://scienceblogs.com/grrlscientist/2010/07/20/todays-mystery-bird-for-you-to-644/
- ScienceBlogs seems to have morphed (evolved) into: http://www.theguardian.com/science/grrlscientist
- Evolutionary Biology Online Journal Club: https://evobiojournalclub.wordpress.com/
- The Science Teaching Journal Club. Note what follows:
- The Science Teacher Journal Club is a place where we hope science teachers, and anyone else with an interest, will gather together to discuss ideas about science science education published in journals, articles, books and else where. The idea is borrowed from the original Twitter Journal Club for doctors started by @fidouglas and @silv24 and also owes a debt to @markgfh for suggesting that teachers might benefit from such a club.
