The scientific literature is vast and growing fast. Nobody can read everything, even if you only read abstracts. So everybody has to filter and decide what to read. Fortunately (or unfortunately!), there are many more filtering tools than there were just a decade or two ago. Which ones do you use?
This poll is a first for us: it’s a follow-up to a poll we did on the same topic five years ago. That poll found that things aren’t changing nearly as fast on this front as you might think if you only hang around with people who rely on new-skool filtering methods. But perhaps things have changed a lot just in the last five years? I’m going to go out on a limb and guess not, but we’ll see!
