ReproducibiliTea Journal Club

The ReproducibiliTea Journal Club at the University of Geneva takes place every first Friday of the month at 1pm on zoom. Exact dates can be found on the poster below. 

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 completely 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 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). This semester, we again invited three of our members to choose a paper and host the discussions (see our Spring 2022 program). The discussants of this semester are Caro Hautekiet (4th of March; ReproducibiliTea organizer), Stéphanie Jeanneret (1st of April), Irene Balboni (6th of May), and Neele Heiser (3th of June).  For more information about the to-be-discussed papers, see the poster of this semester below or by clicking here
