Guidelines for Submission to the Journal and Quiz Club

ESPID has started a new collaboration with the Australian and New Zealand Paediatric Infectious Diseases Group (ANZPID) in their “Paediatric ID Journal and Quiz Club”, also with cooperation from the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS).

The Journal and Quiz Club hosts, on a monthly basis, a summary of an article of interest with relevance to Paediatric Infectious Diseases, together with a quiz of 1 to 3 multiple choice questions.

This is a great opportunity for ESPID members to participate in an international journal club and to stay in touch with what our colleagues are reading. 

A new article is uploaded by the end of each month! 

As well as participating in the journal clubs available, ESPID members are welcome to collaborate in this educational activity by submitting articles of interest themselves. 

Every month, a colleague is selected to contribute to the Journal Club, according to a roster. However, multiple submissions and non-rostered submissions are also welcome. There are no limitations to the subject of the article, other than being relevant to Paediatric Infectious Diseases. It is advised to avoid reviewing articles where a conflict of interest may exist. 

At present, we will be collaborating in the November 2019 review. Please contact the ESPID Secretariat at admin@espid.org in case you are interested in participating in the international Journal Club by September 20th 2019 with the name of an article and a brief statement explaining why the article is interesting to include.

If you are selected to write the Journal club, prepare one paragraph (up to 250 words) to summarise the impact of the article, including the main findings and your take home message. Each posting should have the following format: Background (2-3 lines), Summary of Main Findings (2-3 lines), Implications for practice/opinion/conclusions (2-3 lines) and link to PubMed (if the journal is not open access, ideally include a pdf file).

The above paragraph should be followed by quiz questions based on the subject of the Journal club: 1 to 3 multiple choice questions should be submitted, preferably 'A-type' with a single best answer out of 5 alternatives (A to E), with a brief explanation at the end, for the correct/incorrect answers.

The colleague that is chosen to post should send the final submission to ESPID Secretariat at admin@espid.org by the 10th day of the nominated month.
