Society launches Journal Club

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

The RSS is to host a series of events where authors featured in statistical journals present their papers via a teleconference.
Titled ‘Journal club’ the teleconferences will be open to both members and non-members, who can dial-in to participate in the event. Papers and slides will be available to download beforehand online and each event will focus on a particular theme.
The first event, a joint session with PSI (Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry), is scheduled for 2pm-3.30pm (BST) on 16 April and will focus on topics in survival analysis. This session will be chaired by James Carpenter of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and features two authors, Abdus S Wahed of the University of Pittsburgh and Nicola Schmitt of AstraZeneca.
Each author will present their paper for 20 minutes followed by a 20-minute discussion. Participants are welcome to submit questions before the event and/or take part in the discussion. A podcast will be available shortly after the teleconference to download from the RSS website.
The series is sponsored by Quintiles and the first event is also sponsored by Wiley Blackwell. Further information on how to dial in and how to submit a question can be found on the RSS events page and on the PSI website.
A flier for the event is also downloadable from here.
