An online journal club is like a traditional journal club, with the added advantage to you of being able to participate at any time, from anywhere. A weblink to the chosen article will be available ahead of time. At your leisure, you can go to the site from any computer (no login required) and submit your comments, participating in the general discussion.
To obtain study credits, you are required to submit two posts/comments per discussion cycle. Each discussion topic and selected article will be available for discussion for a five week period. There will be a short orientation at the beginning where journal club members will have the opportunity to choose the journal articles that will be included in the journal club sessions. There will be a cycle of five or six discussion topics over the year.
