These articles describes a technique that can be applied to article searches, in general.
This short article describes a "three pass" method for reading research articles. I find it to be really helpful - give it a try!
arXiv is a highly-automated electronic archive and distribution server for research articles in physics, mathematics, computer science, nonlinear sciences, quantitative biology and statistics. Openly accessible and moderated, the articles in arXiv are NOT peer-reviewed. arXiv is maintained and operated by the Cornell University Library with guidance from the arXiv Scientific Advisory Board and the arXiv Sustainability Advisory Group.
Indexes scientific and technical journals in physics, electrical engineering, electronics, communications, control engineering, computers and computing, and information technology. Coverage: 1969-present. Updated weekly.
