Dit gezegd hebbende, hoe gaat het er echt aan toe – in real life?
Blog of X (how-do-you-keep-up?)
How do you keep up? I thought I’d pose a quick question. Besides my glorious Super Paper Fridays, how do YOU keep up on the literature? Feeds created on PubMed for common searches (same with Science Direct). I’ve been thinking about trying out Yahoo! Pipes to filter staff better as well. Any thoughts?

I just keep my BS meter set ‘Super Sensitive’.
That and I only read the methods and results of the papers. After a while, you can predict the discussions. Introductions are filled with everything you know already.
Yeah, my BS meter is permanently set to “Extreme”, though a little lower for reputable journals.
I was asking more how you search all the journals and stay up to date on developments. Do you search as needed, research some theme every so often, etc?
Updates from PubMed are my primary way of keeping up with new research. That and recommendations from other grad students.
Luckily (or not), I am in a field that does not move at lightspeed…
