Heart’s Twitter Journal Club

TwitterLogo_#55aceeJoin in our Journal Club on Twitter and engage with readers from across the world!

Each month we will discuss a paper from Heart.

We will select a recent paper ahead of time and then discuss four different aspects of it for about 15 minutes each.

The paper under discussion will be free to access for a week prior to the Journal Club.

Feel free to join the next journal club – they happen monthly, on the first Thursday of each month at 7PM GMT (8PM BST). All Welcome!

To join in you will need to have a Twitter account. To sign up to Twitter, click here (it doesn’t take long and make sure you follow us –@Heart_BMJ).

When it comes to the tweet chat itself, we suggest you use tchat.io. This is a specific site used for tweetchats as it cuts out all the other distractions on Twitter. Log into tchat.io using your Twitter details, then type #HeartJC into the search bar. This pulls up all the tweets using the hashtag. You can tweet from here and it will automatically add the correct hashtag at the end of each tweet for those overexcited tweeps!

You can otherwise tweet using Twitter, but you need to make sure you add the hashtag to each tweet otherwise we won’t see it.

Follow Heart (@Heart_BMJ) for all the latest updates on Twitter. The Journal Club tweets can be identified by the hashtag #HeartJC
