# Keep up with literature

Notes from this post.

• Every morning, read abstracts. Save some relevant ones for later to read deeper.
• Every Friday use a regular time block to read in details of the most relevant ones. Blog about it or Twit it within 140 characters.
• Summer is best time for reading.
• Keep organized and able to backtrack is most challenging.
• Need to draw a line between specificity and sensitivity.
• Write grants and papers.
• Play with different tools and establish a reading routine.

• Papers that cited my papers
• Papers that cites an interesting paper or papers that the interesting paper cites

## Prioritize

• By Journal
• Crucial papers: from colleagues, conferences, meetings.
• Important papers will be cited so often that it is impossible to miss.
• Do not try to read all at once.

## Update 2019

• I organize literature with mendeley which seems a very popular choice as of today.
• I use a phone app called research to subscribe feeds from journals. Biorxiv papers are supported by this app. It also can be linked to a Mendeley account.
