The 100 OJC Events between 2023 and 2024 are only open to global educational researchers as hosts. Other than that, both research students and educational researchers in the domain of education science can host online journal club events on ResearchIC.
100 Online Journal Club Events are abbreviated as “100 OJC Events” on ResearchIC. It is the primary initiative of a three-year R&D project involving the use of online journal club events to train research literacy in the education domain. The project's PI is Dr.Jingjing Lin, an assistant professor at Toyohashi University of Technology (Japan).
100 OJC Events intend to invite and collaborate with 100 educational researchers from around the world, to co-create and deliver online journal club events. These OJC events are primarily designed for postgraduate research students. The purpose is to investigate whether using OJC events could improve educational research literacy levels of higher degree research students.
