PREreview + JMIR Publications Virtual COVID-19 Preprint Journal Club

(Toronto/Portland, 27 March 2020) In addition to its' previous Call for COVID19 Papers, JMIR Publications has joined forces with PREreview to bring together scientists from across the globe for a virtual discussion and collaborative review of a recent preprint covering new research related to coronavirus SARS-COV-2 leading to the disease referred to as COVID-19.

After our previous call for preprint nominations (archived here), the paper to be discussed at the journal club has now been selected:

“Knowledge and behaviors toward COVID-19 among U.S. residents during the early days of the pandemic”


Registration now open:

The online journal club will be hosted by two facilitators who will guide participants through a constructive discussion of the preprint following a curated template. The moderators will be joined by an invited expert, the author of the preprint and researchers from all over the world including you! 

WHEN: April 14th, 2020, 12noon ET

HOW: REGISTER NOW to join us and invite others to come along. Not sure if you can join yet? Sign up anyway to receive updates on the events and decide later.

WHERE: The video conference software Zoom. Please register using the link above and we will send you the information on how to join the calls. 

Get ready to spend one hour with your fellows colleagues diving straight into the preprint and resurfacing with constructive feedback for the authors. A short version of the review will then be posted on Outbreak Science Rapid PREreview while the longer report will be posted on PREreview and receive a digital object identifier (DOI).
