Journal Club

The Cosmology Journal Club is a series of weekly informal discussions of recent papers published or posted on the arXiv. The scope is meant to be very broad but the papers should somehow be related to cosmology. We are hoping theorists, experimentalists and observers from both the Physics and the Astronomy Departments will drop by.

We will have two ~20 minute talks about either someone’s research or an arXiv paper, led by two assigned presenters. The last 20 minutes will be open for anyone to suggest and discuss an arXiv paper. Anyone can volunteer to present a paper briefly, and then the rest can weigh in with comments, questions and complaints. The goal is to keep the entire process very informal.

For fall 2022 the Journal Club will be held Friday from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. CST, unless otherwise noted. Please feel free to bring along your lunch. It takes place in 5280 Chamberlin Hall. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Journal Club will be held in a hybrid format (Subject to change). All faculty, postdocs, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in Cosmology and Astrophysics are welcome to listen, suggest and present!

If you have questions or comments about this Journal Club, would like to propose a topic or volunteer to introduce a paper, contact Peter Ferguson ( or Yjan Gordon (
