Research Tips & Stories for Everyone
Research is fun but definitely not an easy job to do. But, it is lovely and exciting enough for many people to dive into including myself around 10 years ago. Yes, whether you just begun or are experienced guru of your topic, we all in the same fun ride of boat named science!
We all have to self-train and grow ourselves to become seasoned researchers - well, life is a such thing. But, it doesn't mean that everyone has to repeat the same trials and error & endless search and try loops for everything in research. Maybe some good tips can save hurtles and offer more time to think innovative ideas! Despite we see the increasing trend of saddening politicization of science to promote certain political ideas, self-promotions, damaging competitions, etc, we all have to strive to share good things with others under the shared goal - doing good and quality science & having fun.
Being the first member of the lab where I did my Master and Ph.D. degrees, I have been (although not intentional) in the position of training new members for many things, including basic research skills. As this job becomes repeated more than 6 years, I found many of the contents is repeating again and again for different members. With this obvious observation, one simple idea hits me - maybe it would be helpful to gather those in more sharable form for everyone beyond certain labs I work in - and here I wish to start TechRabbit's Note.
Maybe my note will be a bit ecliptic collection of many things - tips for literature review, paper publication, figure drawing, collaboration formation, idea/project formation, etc - but will be fun as I will try my best to share the best practices and tips I have learned with some downloadable examples I can share. Hope this small rabbit effort would be helpful for the fellow science lovers.
