Through our early-careers initiative eLife is pleased to work with students and post-docs to host journal clubs, symposia, chats with faculty, and more, around the world and throughout the year.

The events have been a wonderful collaboration that have helped us to understand the lives of early-career researchers more deeply, and to explore how the eLife initiative might evolve to benefit them.

In 2015, we’ve supported over twenty journal clubs and courses, six conferences, and the international Pint of Science festival.
