About uniMIND

uniMIND is a global network of academic journal clubs, open to academics of all levels and disciplines. The common factor across of all is the focus on mind, brain, and psychedelic research.

Local groups operate mostly autonomously through regular meetings in which research literature, academic talks, documentaries, or projects are discussed. Besides, there are monthly central web-sessions with invited authors and the yearly uniMIND Symposium. Continue reading below to learn more!

Local and international groups

uniMIND would not exist without its global network of local groups. Most of them are registered associations at universities and they meet at least once per month.During meetings, scientific literature, academic talks, documentaries, or the participants’ own projects are usually discussed.

(uniMIND global map coming soon!)

uniMIND Central Sessions

The monthly uniMIND Central Sessions are web-based, moderated journal clubs with invited authors. For each session, one article is prepared and discussed. Advance reading and active participation are expected.

The sessions are announced and can be joined through the MIND Community Plattform (MCP) and the MIND Events calendar.

unMIND Symposium

The Symposium is our network’s event highlight. We come together at a different university each year for a mini-conference with talks from senior and junior academics, group discussions, and social events.

Join a Group

With several established uniMIND groups, there may be one at your location already. Check the map for details and contact information.

Participating in a uniMIND group does not require a MIND Membership – all you need to do is contact the respective coordinator and join their group.

Being part of an academic journal club has many advantages for you, your network and skills, and your career. We cannot list them all here, but a detailed list of benefits can be found in the Expectations Guide linked further below!

For me, it is really helpful to have some orientation in this vast academic field. It is also nice to see how engaged people can be and happy that there is such a group within our university. I am sure uniMIND will positively influence my course of study, getting myself involved in something meaningful. Even if my contribution is small, it is great that it evokes a feeling of being involved and part of something.
