Digest #150: How To Read An Academic Paper

3.     QALMRI Instructions by Brosowsky and Parshina

QALMRI stands for Question, Alternatives, Logic, Method, Results, and Inferences and proposes guiding questions for each section of an academic paper and introduces a more elaborate approach to reading a scientific paper. While reading a specific section in the paper, try to obtain answers to the different guiding questions. This technique helps to take a critical view on an academic paper and to dig a bit deeper of what it means. I need to thank one of my colleagues, Phil McAleer, for pointing me to this resource.
