Recently I came across in what should have been the first academic paper I’ve ever read. As many other researchers, I learned how to read papers by reading them. I don’t think there’s anything wrong about this, because you end up developing your own method. The problem is that it normally takes a long time to come up with such a method. After reading the paper “How to Read a Paper”, I realized the approach proposed by the Dr. Srinivasan Keshav is in many ways similar to mine. It also gave me more ideas on how to improve my reading skills. Thus, I think this is a valuable resource for researchers of any level of experience.
I strongly encourage you to spend 10 minutes of your life to read this 2-pages super informative paper. Have a good read!
Thanks to Dr. Levi Lelis for such a good reading recommendation.
