Last week, I discovered there are several medical or healthcare related journal clubs running with Twitter as the platform for the conversation, or to coordinate a face-to-face event.

I found even more, although I don’t suppose I should really be surprised.
* General (#TwitJC)
* Ambulance (#AmbJC)
* Anesthesia & Critical Care
* Biological and Computational Acoustic Processing Journal Club
* Clinical Psychology (#cpjc)
* Evidence-Based Practice
* ICU & Critical Care
* IU Bone Journal Club (#iubonejc)
* Registered Dieticians (#rdjc)
* Social Work Education
* Urology (#urojc)
* Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene
People share useful information, distill nuggets, and make intelligent observations and criticism, which lead to rich conversations.

They recognize the importance of the journal clubs in showing the public important aspects of science communication and critical thinking about science.

They have different practices, but some have really clever tips and tricks for engaging their audience.

Here are some of the papers that have been making the rounds this way, either for the journal club conversation, or proposed for consideration.
