Reviewing literature is a time consuming process. Finding the latest articles around one topic and grouping the results into meaningful categories is an essential part of this process. The aim of this process is to bring together what belongs together. Or, explained more precise, to collect large amount of information and to condense the results into smaller “eatable” pieces.
Quick reading and understanding of the literature is one of the most important skills that you will need here for. Reading abstracts is definitely a good starting point, but sometimes you will want to get a deeper understanding of an article without having much time for it.
In this case, reading summaries may be helpful. Universities and other organizations sometimes publish high quality summaries on the web. If you find such a resource, use it and save it as your favorite in your browser.
