We include in this page the list of the articles we discussed in our recent Journal Clubs, with the link to the original manuscript. The comments are under the responsability of their own authors, ie ourself. If you want to be added to the mailing list,  write to the magic board. If you are just interested in the historical articles, you can directly go to the History session.
