Response/Feedback requested: Journal Club?
I would like to solicit feedback and comments on an idea to further enhance the role and utility of this blog.
This inspiration comes from Bell labs and the physics community.....
They started a journal club (year 2003). Each month ONLY 2-3 already published recent journal papers are reviewed and commentary posted in the form of a newsletter. Since only 2-3 papers are reviewed, the selection is much more stringent and careful. The contribution is regular and periodic (monthly). Hence, this newsletter is take very seriously by physicists.
In our case, this can be done within our blog. I suspect we could achieve the same kind of interest if we restrict "notable" papers to 1-3 per month and make it a regular monthly feature. In principle anyone could submit a commentary but the blog moderators will select the top 2-3.
Please leave your comments below. Thank you.
