The 100 OJC Events between 2023 and 2024 are originally open to global researchers and research students in the field of education science. But other fields' researchers and research students are also welcome.
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.
