ASAPbio Community Call November 2020

November 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST


Our next ASAPbio community call will take place on 5 November 2020 at noon EST/5pm BST. 

Journal clubs are a great opportunity to appraise the latest research and for early-career researchers to hone critical appraisal skills. Preprint commentary is gaining increasing attention: in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the review and commentary of preprints has never been as relevant, and journal clubs provide a great opportunity to contribute to the evaluation of preprints. Discussing preprints in journal clubs provides feedback to the authors, valuable comments for readers and can raise your and your group’s profile.

At the Community call, we will discuss preprint journal clubs and share practical steps for how to get started:

  • ASAPbio Fellow Sandra Franco Iborra will talk about the benefits of including preprints in journal clubs
  • Daniela Saderi will provide an overview of PREreview journal clubs
  • Learn how to set up a preprint journal club – ASAPbio Fellow Fabio Palmieri will share his experience setting up a program for preprint journal clubs at his institution

Our Community calls include a section for updates from the Community – do you have a preprint-related project where you need help or input? If so, add a few details on the agenda for a lightning presentation to the group.
