Society of Physics Students

The UVM SPS Physics Journal Club

The University of Vermont Physic Department has a long tradition of scientific research in the graduate and undergraduate community. However, many students don't know how to take their first steps into this world. How do I get a research adviser? Who should I choose? What options do I have? How can I learn more about what Physics at UVM has to offer?

With questions like these plaguing incoming physics students, UVM SPS is proud to introduce the SPS Physics Journal Club. The purpose of the Journal Club is simple: to introduce undergraduate and beginning graduate students to advanced physics research by discussing and presenting on peer-reviewed physics papers. Meetings of the Journal Club will be biweekly, in between meetings of UVM SPS, and will be held in Room A425 of the Cook Physical Science Building. Everyone is welcome to come to meetings, but to present on a paper, you must either 1) be a graduate student in physics, 2) an undergraduate physics major and SPS member engaged in an active research project, 3) an undergraduate physics major and SPS member engaged who is entering his/her senior year, or 4) an undergraduate physics major and SPS member who is taken or has taken a physics course approved for graduate credit. See below for a list of upcoming talks of the journal club.
