You’ll be glad to know this is a short post.
Since most of my material will be referencing primary scientific articles I thought it would be useful to provide a guide on how to read, understand and critically evaluate them so everyone can have a look and tell me if I’m wrong about anything I write.
I hate being wrong so please do tell me.
Fortunately there are people much better at those things than I am so there are links here, here and in ^^the menu at the top of the page^^ to Jennifer Raff’s blog Violent Metaphors where all the hard work’s been done for me. For some more papers to practise on check out the open access PLOS (Public Library Of Science) journals. They’re great. For something lighter check out their blogs.
I’ll be taking Jennifer’s advice on board too because it seems to be pretty comprehensive.
Maybe check out the rest of her site while you’re there!
