Description - Critical Reading by Ben Yudkin
Textbooks are designed to teach, to explain, and to make complex information easily understood and assimilated. Research papers do the reader no such favours. Being able to understand and use primary research is an essential tool in any scientific career. This book teaches these valuable skills simply and clearly, saving you hours in the long run. Reading Research explains how to: Approach every paper methodically Spot work aimed to support a pet theory Gain confidence in questioning what you read Be alert to bias Use abstracts intelligently Identify suspect experimental method Assess methodology Interpret results and confidence Draw influence from published work Using published 'papers in focus', and the writing and rewriting of a mock paper to illustrate the principles involved, this book imparts valuable know-how to students and researchers from any biomedical or biological discipline. The text is easily read and understood, and the use of key points, summaries and reference reinforces good technique.
