I am Reading Papers

Mon 11 January 2016 | tags: essay, paper, reading, dissertation, activity, -- (permalink)

If I had a resolution for the new year, it would be my plan to read one academic paper per day. I feel as though reading people's documented research work would help broaden my knowledge and deepen my insight.

So I started looking for a way to crowdsource paper suggestions from a source, namely Quora. However, as I didn't get the much needed feedback in due time, Google was my next stop. My google search led me to this page on Github.

After launching the first paper in my document-reader software, I was surprised to see that my earlier projections of papers being under 20 pages was flawed, and so I decided to replan the whole paper-reading thing.

Therefore, I will now attempt to read at least one paper per week.

The reasons for this are not far fetched. I don't want to consume these publications like some fictional works. Instead, I want to read to near-full if not full understanding of their content.

The paper I am currently reading, my first, is "Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures" by Roy Thomas Fielding. It was his submission for a doctoral program in the year 2000.
