Welcome to the VERSIM Journal Club!
Self-appointed leader: Liliana Macotela[Third year PhD student, SGO]
Underling in charge of motivation: Claudia Martinez[Designated Assistant Prof., Nagoya U.]
- NEXT CLUB MEETING - Last one of the year!! 26 November, 2019
Fine structure of large-amplitude chorus wave packets (Santolik et al., 2013).
Origins and purpose
During the 8th VERSIM workshop, we had several opportunities to discuss science and the future of our group. One of the ideas put forward was the creation of a Journal Club, in which we could discuss a published paper of interest to the VERSIM community. In particular, we hope to encourage scientific discussion between students and scientists.
I'm interested, but how does it work?
Initially we are setting up monthly meetings. The idea is to take turns, anyone can suggest a paper to discuss. The person who picked a paper will lead the discussion, while the others can just listen, ask questions, comment or correct. We would like to create a friendly and lively environment where students can learn and engage, and build their scientific confidence.
I'm not a student, can I still join?
Although the original purpose is to create connections between students in the VERSIM community, we also welcome young and older scientists! If you like discussing science, like sharing your knowledge and motivating your juniors, we would like to hear from you.
This sounds great, how do I join? [Wait, I have questions]
To join the Journal Club or any related inquiries please contact Liliana, edithlilianamc'at'gmail.
If all else fails, contact the web-girl.
