The Blue Journal Club is an international journal club on women’s health research based on Twitter (as @BlueJCHost). We use the hashtag #BlueJC for our tweets. Simply add this hashtag (“#BlueJC”) to each tweet and we will capture it. Each #BlueJC opens for 7 days with an advertised start time.
The next #BlueJC will also have a live demonstration session at SpROGs 2013 Conference in Nottingham, the United Kingdom.
All BJOG #BlueJC papers also have a complementary slide set suitable for face-to-face journal clubs with your local colleagues. You can access the slide set of this paper here (data S1).
