IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration closes on June 11th.

Introduction

Journal clubs are a popular way for scientists to get together and discuss recently published scientific papers. They allow participants to stay up-to-date with new techniques and advances in their fields of interest.

The Summer Intern Journal Clubs are your opportunity to participate in this form of scientific communication.  Journal Clubs will meet weekly for four to six weeks this summer (mid-June to early August). They will be led by NIH graduate students and postdocs, who are there to guide and support you as you develop your critical reading skills.

Students planning to participate in a Summer Journal Club should either attend the Science Skills Boot Camp or view the Reading a Scientific Article Webinar on the OITE online resources page.

Choosing a Summer Journal Club

While most Journal Clubs will meet on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, a few will  meet on other campuses as noted in the journal club title. Please make sure you read the journal club descriptions before registering.

When registering for a Summer Journal Club, please select and prioritize up to three journal clubs that interest you.  We will then match you to a single journal club so that you don't take too much time away from your research.  While we will do our best to assure that students are assigned to their top choice, the limited size of the journal clubs may require us to enroll some of you in your second choice.

Summer Journal Club registration is now closed.

You will be notified of your Summer Journal Club assignment the week of June 15th. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Ella Klenke.
