ReproducibiliTea Journal Club

The ReproducibiliTea Journal Club at the University of Geneva takes place every first Friday of the month at 3pm in person (3rd of March, 21st of April, and 5th of May)

The ReproducibiliTea Journal Club concept is a grassroots journal club initiative that helps researchers create local Open Science journal clubs at their universities to discuss diverse issues, papers, and ideas about improving science, reproducibility, and the Open Science movement. Starting in early 2018 at the University of Oxford, ReproducibiliTea has now spread to 140 institutions in 27 different countries. They are entirely volunteer-run and provide a unique and supportive community for our members, who are predominantly Early Career Researchers. In January 2021, Beatrice Valentini and Caro Hautekiet started a ReproducibiliTea Journal club at the University of Geneva together with Campus Biotech as part of our local node of the SwissRN. In the Spring semester of 2023, Stéphanie Jeanneret replaced Beatrice Valentini as the co-organizer of the ReproducibiliTea Journal Club.

Past semesters

In the first semester (Spring 2021), we had four journal clubs (see our Spring 2021 program) including one with special guest Sophia Crüwell who is investigating the replication crisis in psychology.

In the second semester (Fall 2021), we invited three of our members (Alberto Antonietti, Philippe Schneider, and Ursa Bernardic) to choose a paper and lead the discussion in four journal clubs (see our Fall 2021 program).

In the third semester (Spring 2022), we again invited some of our members to choose a paper and host the discussions (see our Spring 2022 program). The discussants of this semester were Caro Hautekiet (ReproducibiliTea organizer), Stéphanie Jeanneret, Irene Balboni, and Neele Heiser (see our Spring 2022 program).  

In the fourth semester (Fall 2022), we discussed three papers of which two were selected by our local node members (Heterogeneity Revolution and Scientific Computing; see our Fall 2022 program).
