Every day, a variety of research papers are released, covering all of the latest breakthroughs in several subjects. According to Scopus data, global S&E publishing production has increased at a rate of about 4% per year on average since 2008, going from 1.8 million to 2.6 million articles.
This makes it extremely difficult for a scientist to keep it going with all of the work that is being published every day on their subjects of interest, especially if they lack the necessary tools and services.
Here are some of the most essential reasons why you should keep up with all of the current publications in your field:
1. To come up with an innovative research subject and future research possibilities
Knowing the present state of knowledge on a topic, and recognizing gaps are the most important step in formulating a new research topic. A good literature search can help you find a subject that is particular enough to be studied in the context of a specific test and also broad enough to be useful in other situations. Furthermore, being up to date can assist you in defining your long-term research goals and career path.
2. Your research can be based on previous works
As a researcher, you need the work of other researchers as a background for your research process. Since research requires testing, validating, and refuting hypotheses, staying up to date with the latest articles will help you define your research framework. Previously published articles can give you an idea of what approaches and methods to use, what data or resources are currently available for you, and what limitations you need to overcome in your research.
3. To guide junior researchers in their own field
If you are a Ph.D. supervisor, head of department, or instructor, one of your main responsibilities is advising students, novice researchers, or young members of your team on topics relevant to their research projects.
Being up to date with published articles in your field helps you to guide them in the best way and give their work a proper direction. You would not only be assisting them in their individual career advancements, but you would also be contributing to the improvement of your field as a whole.
Given the importance of each of these reasons to a researcher’s career, as well as the vast number of research you have to go through, you require a tool that streamlines the process and discovers relevant articles in an efficient manner.
R-Discovery is a powerful mobile application developed by Cactus Communications and designed specifically for this purpose. This free research app allows you to stay up-to-date in your field. This program by Using the powerful UNSILO algorithms searches the main corpora of scientific articles and offers you three related articles every day. This is a guarantee that you will not miss out on new research in your field.
