There was a time not so long ago that I would go through dozens of RSS feeds on a near daily basis using Google reader. Then google reader died. I set up feedly and digg reader but rarely used them. I realized that a subscription to Sinocism (support Sinocism!) already presented me with a great list of too many China news stories that I could read in a day anyway, so why go searching out more?
A few weeks ago, I was putting together a bibliography and clicking through to a journal’s website and saw that there was a new set of papers available online. And it hit me: academic papers. I subscribed to three dozen different journal feeds (some journals have multiple feeds), and by not checking my RSS, I was missing out. Perhaps I am not alone. To remedy this situation, I will regularly post a list of links to different academic papers that catch my eye.
n.b. many/most of the links will be gated, but often one can find ungated versions using the search engine of your choice (google scholar is the best bet).
If I’ve missed a great paper that you know of (or wrote!), please let me know in the comments or on twitter (@jerometenk).
