#365papers February Update

In my first post on this blog, I set myself 3 PhD-related goals for 2017. One of those goals was to read more widely, and more frequently, and I decided that doing the #365papers challenge would be a good way to do that.

Here’s my February update. I found this month a big more difficult than last month – time just seemed to go much faster so and I was missing days quite regularly, meaning I was reading 4 or 5 papers at a time in order to keep up.

February’s reading:
