Ytterligare informationThe maximum number of participants is ten (10) on first come first serve basis. Research students and residents from SLU and Uppsala University are prioritised until the application deadline closes (9th of February 2021).
All meetings are held digitally with Zoom as the platform.
At least three weeks before each session the participant with moderating position sends three good articles (that should not have too in depth- focus but be of interest and readability by all participants even if they are not in the exactly same field) to the course organizers. The subject of Reproduction is interpreted in its widest sense. The course organizers select the most appropriate article (in specific cases it could be two articles, but this will be exceptions), this selected article is then distributed to all participants at least two weeks in advance of the session. The moderating participant selects a senior researcher with good knowledge in the area to participate in the meeting as a support for the discussion (the course organizers can help with this if needed). All participants in the course is given a task for each session: usually to describe and explain a figure or table in the selected article. As a help for the assessment of the article all participants fill in a template on critical assessment ("FormJCR" distributed to all participants at the onset of the course) and bring to the session. The moderator is responsible for giving an overview of the paper and to lead the discussion. If the group is over 7 persons, subgroups will be formed where the participants go through their individual tasks before returning to the whole group for a systematic review of the article piece by piece (led by the moderator). Finally, all participants will judge all information brought up and individually answer the question if this paper should have been accepted in its current form or not and why.
