Srinivasan Keshav describes the three-pass approach which acts as a filtering system. It is an iterative and incremental way of reading a paper. It consists of:
Goal: To get the big picture of the paper
Duration: Less than 10 minutes.
Activity: Glancing over the following sections of paper:
Ignore the content of section and sub-sections.
At the end of the first pass you should be able to answer:
Duration: Can take up to 1 hour.
Duration: Can take up to 4-5 hours if you're a beginner(you should carefully consider if this step is worth your time).
Doing a literature survey is a bit different than reading a single paper.
Use this only if you have to read the entire paper.
