·         Educational scores will be allocated to the three first articles with the highest quality.

·         In case of interference with other programs at the department, the journal club sessions are prioritized.

·         Assessment of the professors regarding the presentations will be incorporated into the final grades in the theses of master's degree students and comprehensive test scores of PhD candidates.

·         Topic of the session and article is announced one week in advance (students are required to send the topic of their article and presentation to the head of the journal club one week in advance via email).
