BIOL-514 EEB Journal Club for Credit
Fall for 2017-2018
Spring for 2017-2018
Journal Club provides a relaxed environment for graduate students to research and present a journal article of their choosing to an audience of peers and professors. It serves as practice grounds for speaking to a scientific audience. Learning to critically read, write, and evaluate scientific papers is one of the most important long-term skills required for success in science, both during and after graduate school. Through analysis of published papers, we hope that students will gain an understanding of the different elements of theory, experimental design, analysis, and writing that are essential for scientific communication and successful publication. Above all, journal club should be a forum for learning and for the expansion of scientific knowledge in ecology, evolution and behavior.
