Circ: CQO Twitter Journal Club

The editors of Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes are excited to bring you the Circ CQO Twitter Journal Club.

Led by John Ryan, MD, our Innovations Editor, these virtual journal clubs bring together authors, editors, and readers on a monthly basis to discuss an article from the journal or an issue facing the CV outcomes community.

We invite you, as members of the community and readers of the journal, to join these discussions and share your thoughts with us.

This is how it works: For an hour, the @CircOutcomes Twitter account will be dedicated to the journal club. (We use the hashtag #outcomesjc in all of our tweets, and you should too!) We will pose questions for discussion throughout the hour. As moderators, we will be active for the whole time, but you can feel free to jump in and out of the conversation as your time permits. After the journal club is over, we will post a Storify summary of the discussion.

During the journal club, you can:

  • Ask questions about the article
  • Respond to the editors’ questions with your own thoughts or experiences
  • Comment on the article’s findings
  • Talk to other journal readers and members of our community
  • Learn more about the paper and issues facing CV outcomes research today

Upcoming journal clubs will be posted on the journal twitter feed and the journal homepage.

Questions? Please see our Tips page, or contact us via Twitter (@CircOutcomes) or email ([email protected]org)
