  • Austin Che 09:42, 5 April 2007 (EDT): Article reviews is one thing, but real life journal clubs also have a real-time discussion to them. Perhaps someone can pick an article to discuss on a certain day/time. A real-time chat on the wiki followed by a consensus summary of the article could be useful in general.
  • Yep, Austin, you have a point there. I'd say article review or "time-lapse" journal is complementary to a live journal club. Both have their disadvantages: the former, doesn't allow for real discussions while the latter is difficult because of time zones. West coast just got up, east coast is having lunch, Europe is about to leave work and in China only some hard core scientists stay up in the middle of the night. Is the real-time chat getting started? Jasu 11:09, 5 April 2007 (EDT)
    • Jasonk 08:50, 6 April 2007 (EDT):The real-time chat function is implemented now (just click the chat tab above). I think the idea of trying out an online journal club using the chat, and following with a summary (and a log of the chat) would be a great way to figure out what sort of features would support online journal clubs in the future. Because I'm sure the process would be a little painful the first time through :) Awesome work with this area, by the way Jasu.
