And don't be discouraged if you're not a specialist yourself - start with the condensed versions and fill in the scientific gaps by using online resources like Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.org) or the Google search engine (http://www.google.com) or even (perish the thought) books.Having waded through a number of condensed Graduate thesis statements, I agree that it is quicker than the entire paper. I do however, take exception to your "perish the thought books" comment. While there is a wealth of information out there on the highway, many travellers have not received training on validating that information. While Wikipedia may provide a quick overview, is the writer experienced in the field? How much of today's research is invalid/erroneous? If the science is based on shaky conclusion is it still good science? I tend to look at the printed materials where peer review will strip away the false science. Then again I am not a scientest, only a bean counter with a logical mind married to an engineer-trained teacher. Now, having said all that I think this board is a great idea and aptly named. Remember the final chapter and the 'house of books'.WineFool
