Cell Biology: Journal Clubs

Journal Clubs

Journal Clubs are discussion groups focused on evaluating the literature of a field. In practice, journal clubs provide students and professionals opportunities to develop critical literature appraisal skills and keep informed about research developments and trends.

PubMed Commons

PubMed Commons is a scientific discussion forum that allows authors of scientific literature to share opinions and information about scientific publications cataloged in PubMed.  Akin to a large interactive journal club, PubMed enables and fosters a discussion and evaluation of scientific scholarship.

Explore the discussions to discover how researchers, scientists and professionals engage in the critical analysis of scientific literature. Commentary often references additional literature drawing explicit connections between studies and information resources.
