I'm currently in the process of preparing a journal club presentation (I'm a Psychogeriatrics physician). I've done a couple before, but always seem to re-invent the wheel when it comes to what basic information should be covered.
For example: checking author biographies and previous work so that I have a sense for the context, potential conflicts of interest, etc.
Other areas I usually cover: papers that cite this article, funding sources and journal impact factor.
Is there anything I'm missing?
