CrossValidated Journal Club

Published on 22 December 2010

Jour­nal Clubs are a great way to learn new research ideas and to keep up with the lit­er­a­ture. The idea is that a group of peo­ple get together every week or so to dis­cuss a paper of joint inter­est. This can hap­pen within your own research group or depart­ment, or vir­tu­ally online.

There is now a vir­tual jour­nal club oper­at­ing in con­junc­tion with Cross​Val​i​dated​.com. The first paper dis­cussed was on text data min­ing. It appears that the next paper may be on col­lab­o­ra­tive fil­ter­ing.

The empha­sis is on Open Access papers, prefer­ably with asso­ci­ated soft­ware that is freely avail­able. Some of the dis­cus­sion tends to cen­tre on how to imple­ment the ideas in R.

For those of us in Aus­tralia, the tim­ing is tricky. The first dis­cus­sion took place at 3am local time!

If you can’t make the Cross­Val­i­dated Jour­nal Club chats, why not start your own local club?
