Tips for Participating in the Circ CQO Twitter Journal Club
First, if the journal club is focused on a particular article, please take a look at the paper on the CQO homepage – the paper will be made freely available as soon as the journal club is announced.
To most effectively follow the conversation, please keep these tips in mind:
- Sign in to or create a Twitter account at www.twitter.com.
- If you don’t already, please follow @CircOutcomes.
- To keep up with the journal club, please be sure to follow the hashtag #outcomesJC.
- Important: With any question, comment, etc., that you send, please be sure to include “#outcomesJC” in the tweet. This ensures that everyone knows your tweet is intended for the Journal Club discussion.
- To follow #outcomesJC, there are a few options:
- On your phone: you can enter #outcomesJC in the “search twitter” panel.
- On your computer (this may be easier for longer periods of time): In a search engine, you can go to a website such as www.tweetdeck.com or http://www.tchat.io/ and log in with your twitter username and password. You can create a column dedicated to #outcomesJC. Any tweet that includes #outcomesJC will then be included in this column and you can easily follow along with the conversation.
- If you don’t want to use a dedicated website, you can go to www.twitter.com and enter #outcomesJC in the “search twitter” panel.
- At the journal club start time, we will start doing a roll call to see who is participating. To do this, we will ask you to introduce yourself and tell us where you are from and what you do.
- Over the course of the hour, we will be posing several questions to the audience and to our author or special guest. These questions will be labeled T1, T2, T3, etc. We would like to hear your opinions and answers to these questions. There is no right or wrong answer – we welcome all comments. If possible, please start your answer with A1, A2, etc., depending on what topic (T) you are answering.
- Please feel free to jump in and out of the conversation throughout the course of the hour. We are excited to talk with you, but we certainly understand if you have other commitments and are not able to join for the full hour.
