Writing a good Review

May

This workshop is mandatory for all members of the CJAP & CJPN team, but all are welcome to join!

Ever wonder how to write a review for an empirical article?
How is this different from editing a science communication article?

Join CJAP & CJPN to learn about the review process and practical pointers for how to review papers from a science communication and academic perspective.

Dr. Emily Coffey (Psychology Department) will be giving the workshop on how to write an empirical review, and Cristina Sanza (Journalsim Department) will be covering how to edit a science communication article.

As academics, we become quite good at explaining our work to other academics, but get significantly less training conveying complex information to the public.
This leads to the frequent mistake of ‘dumbing’ down research findings instead of making it more concise.

Join us in this workshop to learn how to communciate complex science to the public.


Social Media for Academics

Alt Text

Building a social media presence is becoming increasingly important in today’s very online society. Social media helps academics develop collaborations, share their most recent work and recruit participants for studies.

While Twitter has quickly become the academic’s favorite social media platform: How, when and what exactly do academics tweet about?
What other social media platforms do academics use?

Join the CJAP team to learn how to use Twitter, Github, Facebook, ResearchGate, LinkedIn and more!

Jourday Club Evening

Alt Text

Do you want to gain experience reading and presenting empirical articles? Yet do you hate the stress and pressure that comes with presenting in front of classmates and your professor?
Psychology student groups from Concordia and McGill (MAPS, CJAP, CJPN, MPSA & CUPA) have come together to bring you the first ever Journal Club Evening!

The aim of this event is to create a stress-free environment in which undergraduates can practice presenting and discussing an empirical article on topic of interest (in psychology). Presentations will last 10-15 mins, followed by a 5 mins discussion on the article.
To make sure the process remains stress-free, all undergraduate students (from Concordia and McGill) who are interested in participating will be paired with a graduate student who will help them choose their empirical article and prepare a short PowerPoint presentation summarizing the chosen article. Further, Concordia’s Psychology Journals (CJAP & CJPN) will give a workshop on the “Dos and Don’ts: Presenting an Article Summary” on February 1st at 4:30pm to help participating undergraduate students (and anyone else!) learn the best tips to read, summarize and present their article.
