About the 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club: We meet usually on the 1st Tuesday of the month as the name suggests (inspired by the ABC TV series “1st Tuesday Book Club”). Each month, from amongst ourselves we identify a Reader Leader.  He or she picks a highly cited, ‘top ten’ or major-prize-winning article, preferably in an SPS or ComSoc journal. Through the month, each of us reads the article. At the next meeting, the Reader Leader leads a discussion of that article, starting with his/her own appraisal. In so doing, we all broaden our understanding of the field and further develop a sense of community.

1st Rule of 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club: tell everyone about 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club.
