Who are NWRAG?
However, we don’t just stick to the conduct of such projects and are also involved in a number of educational projects to promote research and audit skills. One really successful element of this has been our local journal club. Usually based in the warm confines of a local pub, it has met to discuss the latest papers with a beer in hand, and in many case getting a response letter published (7 so far). However, it’s clear that it isn’t always possible for people to make it to such events with the number of work and other commitments that take up the evenings.
And so here we are! Inspired by the spirit of FOAMed (see here) and some other great work done with similar ideas, we decided to take the whole experience online. This will hopefully give everyone who wants to get involved the chance to do so and not be limited by geographical or time constraints.
What's the Plan?
What's the next step?
If you’re not yet on Twitter then I can strongly recommend checking it out. It’s a fantastic way to share educational materials and further one’s own learning. Here’s a bit of an introduction:
