Any site with analysis/reviews of research articles?

Postby poobear » Sun Jan 23, 2011 1:06 am


I'm a student who have got used to read review articles, they are more or less written as textbooks. However, the real research articles are still very hard for me to read. I can sort of understand their method part, I can sort of understand their figures, and I can sort of understand their conclusions of the results. But I can't yet analyse them - e.g. I have no idea why they designed their experiments in the way they did, and I'm not able to separate weaker evidence from stronger evidence in articles. So I find myself not learning much that I can use in my own research when that happens, nor do I find myself getting better at reading these articles.

I was therefore wondering if there are any good site/forum/blog in where more skilled people than myself sort of analyses research articles? Or if anyone has some other tips for me.

Try scienceblogs - many of the bloggers there cover research articles.
