Logistics of Paper Sign-Up and Presentation

  • Once you have decided on a paper for your presentation, please "reserve" it by putting your (initials/lab section/team color) next to the listing here. If you would like to discuss a paper not on the list below, please email it (as .pdf) to your instructor with a brief description for approval.
  • For visibility, please use the following format to sign up if possible, substituting in your own initials and team color: [ANS/WF/Purple]. Thanks!
  • The same paper may be presented by a T/R and a W/F student, but may only be presented once per section.

As you prepare your talk be sure to follow the specific guidelines for oral presentations in this class.

  • Please post your finished journal club presentation to Stellar no later than 1 pm on the day of your presentation.
  • The order in which your presentations are received will be the order of speakers.
  • Both Day 6 and Day 9 presentations will begin at 1:15 pm sharp in room 16-336.

Paper Options

The list of papers below is provided as a guideline for the types of papers that might be relevant for your presentation. You are not limited to the primary research articles on this list. The list is provided simply to give you an idea of the kinds of subjects that could make suitable presentations for the class. Search PubMed yourself to find articles of interest to you.

The easiest way to locate each paper is to type the "doi" (digital object identifier) in at the DOI website. If that approach gives you an error for some reason, or in future cases where you might not know the doi, you can try typing the title of your article into PubMed to find it. If you have trouble accessing your article directly from there, go to http://libraries.mit.edu/vera, which is MIT's collection of journals online. Try selecting "exact title" from the search pulldown menu if the name of your journal is a common word such as Science. For older articles, you need to choose the JSTOR rather than Highwire interface.
