I wanted to pass along this opportunity that a colleague of mine sent me. It’s a neat opportunity to write a short piece with Nature Reviews Psychology in a Journal Club style. Take a look at the information in this tweet: https://twitter.com/NatRevPsych/status/1408434662284877825
Feel free to contact me with any questions — I can put you in touch with one of the AEs!
