Journal Club

The netECR journal club has been running since November 2015, and provides a spot where ECRs working in suicide and self-harm can come together to discuss a specific topic of interest. Typically, these hour long group skype-calls tend to focus on a new journal article or report which is suggested by one of our group members, and emailed out in advance of the call. In practise, journal club is like a virtual tea-break where ECRs can discuss their thoughts, ideas for collaboration or share tips and knowledge to help their peers.

There is no expectation on members to attend every journal club, so people can join whenever their diary permits. Our Journal club takes place on the last Friday every 2-months time (generally at 10m (GMT)). Details for the next meeting can be found below:

Our next online journal club session will be on Friday, 26th March 2021, 11am (UK/Ireland time). We will be discussing the following paper:

Dickson-Swift, V., James, E. L., Kippen, S., & Liamputtong, P. (2008). Risk to Researchers in Qualitative Research on Sensitive Topics: Issues and Strategies. Qualitative Health Research, 18(1), 133–144.
