The ESICM Journal Review Club (EJRC) began in 2012, with members from the NEXT committee submitting short article reviews of recent publications on a range of topics related to intensive care medicine. The group of contributors has grown over the past years to include regular submissions from N&AHP committee members as well as topical reviews from active members within ESICM’s scientific sections.

ESICM Journal Review Club – Active Members (Updated 02/2018)


Are you dedicated reader of ICM research? Do you have a particular area of interest? 

Are you able to summarise an article, note its limitations and clinical implications with clarity? 

Can you commit to contributing reviews on a bimonthly or quarterly basis? 

Perhaps the ESICM Journal Review Club is for you!  ESICM Members are welcome to contact the Chair of their section and/or ESICM communications with review proposals. See some general guidelines for proposals of submissions below.

Some General Guidelines: 

  • Article reviews should be on articles that have been published within the last six months.
  • Proposed articles should be submitted to the Communication team before preparing the review, to ensure that there is no repetition of articles.
  • Article reviews should be brief (about 400 words), including general rationale for the article concept, reference & link to the article, why it is clinically relevant (this can be in bullet-points) and the take-home message.
  • Please visit our news section for examples of previous article reviews.
