How to Prepare an Outstanding Journal Club Presentation
ACP Journal Club
Once a bimonthly stand-alone journal, ACP Journal Club is now a monthly feature of the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. ACP Journal Club summarizes the best new evidence for internal medicine from over 130 clinical journals. Research staff and clinical editors rigorously assess the scientific merit of the medical literature as it is published and a worldwide panel of over 5,000 physicians assesses the clinical relevance and newsworthiness of rigorous studies.
Cochrane Journal Club
Cochrane Journal Club is a free, monthly publication, appropriate for trainees, researchers and clinicians, that introduces a recently published Cochrane Collaboration systematic review, with additional relevant background information, a podcast explaining the key points of the review, discussion questions, and downloadable PowerPoint slides with key figures and tables. The complete, full text, systematic reviews are available in the
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR)
, licensed through EBSCO.
PubMed Commons Journal Clubs
At least twenty journal clubs in the United States and internationally have opted to be listed with PubMed Commons. Members may post public comments on PubMed records or on social media venues.
