General information

A series of twelve Journal Clubs per year can be validated with 1 ECTS as far as you respect these guidelines: 

1. Principle of organization
The journal club can be organized by the students themselves under the supervision of one local group leaders from their department or institute. It is open to all students in the Doctoral Program in Neurosciences and to all members from the organizing or affiliated department as well as to special invited participants (e.g. guest speakers). It should take place on a regular basis, weekly if possible, on a precise day and time. The responsible group leader should be present during each session.

2. Presentations
Presentations and presenters need to be announced at least one week in advance (if possible with a downloadable pdf file) and be publicly accessible on a website managed by the organizer(s), or sent by e-mail to all participants. Presentations should be no longer than one hour: 10-15 min general introduction, 20-30 min article presentation, 15-30 min discussion. The article presented should be on a neuroscience related topic from a high impact journal (impact factor 8 or higher), unless good reason exists (to confirm with supervising group leader). When possible, we strongly suggest that presenters coordinate the topic of their presentation with the departmental weekly seminar.
Participants should read the paper beforehand and prepare at least one question to discuss.

3. Credits
To validate credits for the journal club, students are required to prepare one presentation and attend 11 sessions. The Journal Club sheet, showing attendance and presentation dates, must be signed by the supervisor and sent to the LNDS coordinator.
