Academic Research: Follow the Citations

The learning space for an academic subject is composed of papers, books, and courses, linked via citations.

  • For more specific topics, use literature reviews and meta-analyses, as they combine different studies.
  • Follow citation trails, focusing on papers that surface repeatedly.

When learning any new topic efficiently, we need to learn the most useful, basic and broadly applicable ideas first.

A project can help guide you if you're learning to do or make something.
