P&P Virtual Journal Club

The P&P Virtual Journal Club is an interactive monthly event which spotlights one article from the most recent issue of JASA. During these meetings, one of the authors of the article provides a brief introduction, before it is opened up for discussion among the participants. The goal of this initiative is to provide a new avenue for interaction within the ASA community, especially now while we have no in-person meetings, and bring attention to recently published work in P&P.
