BLTP Journal Club


The Laboratory of Theoretical Physics JINR announces the opening of the BLTP Journal Club. The BLTP Weekly “Journal Club” will be a regular meeting of scientists for informal discussion of recent publications in peer-reviewed journals and arXiv / preprints in their own or related discipline.

We kindly invite you to participate in the first meeting of the BLTP Journal Club, which is scheduled for Monday, 7 February, at 11:00. The first meeting will be held online only. Chitta Ranjan Das, Chairman of the Journal Club, will perform.

The journal club will keep you up to date with current research, help young scientists exercise their critical thinking and the ability to evaluate recent articles in scientific literature, improve presentation and scientific discussion skills.

The journal club is open to discussing all physical disciplines and will enable researchers to acquire the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge. The meetings will be in online/offline format and will bring up collaborations between both national and international scientific groups.

Anyone can give an informal presentation on a preprint in arXiv or a journal article published in the last week. In addition, there will be an opportunity to talk about older, but important results, or about your own work.

Meetings of the Journal Club will be held every Monday in the Blokhintsev Hall on the 4th floor of BLTP, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Zoom participants are welcome.

The estimated presentation time for one paper is 15-30 minutes. At the end of each meeting, a discussion of the latest physics news is planned.

Those wishing to give a presentation can send an application with an arXiv preprint number or/and journal reference to no later than a day before the next meeting.
