RHUL Journal Club

Welcome to the RHUL Journal Club!


  • Held Bi-Weekly in the Gardener Room, on a day and at a time TBC for ~1 hour.
  • A random speaker will be chosen from the list of Volunteer Speakers on the Friday (A speaker will not be chosen twice in any given rotation).
  • The chosen speaker for that Journal Club should then decide on what paper the group will read, and send it around via e-mail no later than Monday. They should also add the paper to the Journal Log at the bottom of this page along with their name, and include a link to this twiki in the e-mail.
  • Presently we will stick to Particle Physics Papers (of any variety, experimental/theory, collaboration), but later may branch out into other areas of interest.
  • At the following meeting the chosen speaker will lead the Journal Club, giving a short overview, opening discussion of the paper, and controlling debates.

Mailing List

Send all e-mails regarding the Journal Club to: hepdis@pp.rhul.ac.uk

This way ATLAS members and Theorists alike will get the e-mail, as well as anyone else who may be interested.
