You'd Prefer An Argonaute

Scooped Online

Posted in Lab Life by YPAA on February 6, 2010

As I put the finishing touches on a project, I incessantly peruse the literature online, less out of interest in new discoveries, but more out of desperation to not find that I’ve been scooped. Please don’t tell me I’m alone in this behavior/activity. Especially nowadays with all the online advanced releases, one cannot help but check them as they arise, rather than discipline themselves to only check weekly for the weekly journals, bi-weekly for the bi-weekly journals, etc. Embracing technology; chained by technology–inseparable sides of the coin. Less coinage please.

    The only thing worse is writing an original review…
