Many in the scientific community attended the webinar this week with speakers Mary Williams and Michelle Facette, moderated by ASPB Plantae Fellow Xiaohui Li, but for those who didn’t or who want a resource to keep on-hand to help navigate a scientific paper, ASPB Plantae Fellows Rose McNelly and Shiqi Zhang created an infographic to guide beginner and advanced scientists through the steps of reading a scientific paper. This infographic summarizes key sections, details how to approach scientific content with an analytical eye, and includes handy hints for experienced scientific readers
