I have had many requests for a virtual journal club. I am happy to host one. We tried to do one via Twitter several years ago with *very* limited participation, so I am hesitant to jump back in again. That being said, if folks want to try it out, I would be game to give it a go. Only this time using a different medium.
FHO readers have historically been very shy about public engagement. You all are far more likely to contact me offline than comment On Here. So we can do this one of two ways, I think–either use the site to host a series of ongoing questions about a particular article (that I can then digest for everyone at the end of the series so it’s all in one place) OR if people are feeling more reserved about putting themselves out there, have folks submit written responses about a chosen article and compile the responses for readers afterward. I would prefer the 1st option since it feels more akin to actual journal club, but I am open to the 2nd (or another) option.
So what say you, dear FHO readers? Shall we try journal club again? And if so, how should we make it happen? Because I have the perfect article to start us off if we do…
Have you checked out the FHO store lately? You can find the newest research brief, Applying The Strangulation Research To Expert Testimony In Cases With Adult Victims. Or purchase the complete set of three (Strangulation, Aging Bruises, and Consensual Sex Injury) for a special price.
