Abstract:Face to face journal clubs have been used as a medium to share knowledge and discuss research findings in relation to clinical practice. However, attendance at journal club meetings has always been identified as a barrier to successful and sustainable journal clubs. One of the possible solutions to this is the establishment of online journal clubs. This article provides suggestions for those who are interested in forming their own online journal club. An online journal club not only provides an opportunity for asynchronous discussion but also allows members to participate in evidence-based discussion at a time and place of convenience.
